May 4, 1984

Hon. Romeo LeBlanc (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, I do not accept completely the premise of the Hon. Member's question. I do not accept that it is only the economic situation which has forced some provinces, one of which is among the most prosperous provinces in the country, to opt out of this program, to give notice that they did not want to continue participating at 25 per cent. Frankly, I am surprised that the Hon. Member's representations are not made also to his provincial capital.

Mr. LeBlanc:

To make sure that I am really saying what I mean I shall use a language of which I have a better command, as the Hon. Member seems to suggest. Having read the exchange in question, I am surprised that the Hon. Member raised this issue, for I found it as embarrassing to read today as it was to hear yesterday.

If the expression "demagogue" is deemed unparliamentary, I apologize to the House; having said that, however, I suggest that this exchange is far from being representative of what exchanges in the House ought to be.
