May 15, 1984

Hon. Romeo LeBlanc (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, I agree the question is an important one, and we shall have to be very careful in formulating the answer when we bring the legislation before the House. From the outset, however, we wanted to inform Canadians who were interested in the program when it was announced in the Budget that, pending adoption of the Bill, if their mortgage came up for renewal or they had to take out a new mortgage on a new home, they would be eligible for the Mortgage Protection Program as of March 1. We did not want to leave anyone out. Of course, more specific details will follow once the Bill is tabled.
