Most Recent Speeches (Page 4 of 276)


June 1, 1984

Hon. Romeo LeBlanc (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, I presume the Hon. Member is referring to what has commonly become known as the Peace Camp. Am I correct? This situation arose quite a long time ago, as the Hon. Member knows. In fact it lasted throughout the winter. Perhaps the Hon. Member knows that under the previous administrative arrangements there was a committee composed of a number of Departments which, in fact, gave permission for the initial demonstration or manifestation of views to take place. So far the Government has not chosen to put an end to this expression of views.

Hon. Romeo LeBlanc (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, the Hon. Member has made a fairly long parliamentary career of making all kinds of accusations and not listening to the answers. I said very simply that there is legislation which imposes on Ministers some limitations under the right to privacy. I have to see whether I am allowed to release names and addresses in that situation. We are all entitled to the privacy of our personal addresses if we so choose. I will look into it, and I will release what information I can under the Access to Information Act.

Hon. Romeo LeBlanc (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, going back to my days as Minister of Fisheries, I have always been reticent to release names and addresses of individuals due to the normal privacy to which we are all entitled. Outside of that restriction, I am certainly open to inquiring whether more information can be made available.

Mr. LeBlanc:

Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask the Hon. Member for Kamloops-Shuswap (Mr. Riis) whether or not, being the confirmed socialist that I assume he is, he thinks that a housing project which by obligation must make available only 15 per cent of its housing to people of low income is adequate. Does he think that 15 per cent is an adequate figure, taking into consideration the fact that the number of people who are waiting for better housing is increasing? Does he not think that these organizations should come forward with a much larger percentage of assistance for the occupants of their projects?
