Mr. Speaker, I would also like to ask a question from the Hon. Member who just resumed his seat. In his statement, he suggested the Hon. Minister was making pretty nice speeches but that the Government never took any action either on them or on representations made by various committees that have been meeting these last few years. Is the Hon. Member aware that in the Department of Employment and Immigration, there are programs that have been introduced in recent years? I will list a few that are known as-
-the Women's Employment Counselling Centre, the Outreach Programs, wage incentives to the private sector for nontraditional job training, institutional training incentives, and Affirmative Action Programs in the Public Service.
It is the responsibility of the Canadian Government to look after on-the-job training, or post-university training. In his speech, the Hon. Member has apparently suggested that the Canadian Government should call on community colleges and universities in order to dictate to the provinces what kind of courses they should give women so they could later on be accepted in the work force and find employment. He also referred in his speech to the new Constitution adopted last year, right here in Canada, as enacted by this House and Parliament. Is the Hon. Member not satisfied with the training programs we put forward? Is he suggesting we should amend the Canadian Constitution in order that we might then dictate to the provinces what courses should be given in universities and colleges?
