Mr. Caccia:

-without attempting to accuse the Manpower retraining effort of being a colossal blunder, as the hon. member did. Of course, the object of the educational upgrading courses is not to provide the equivalent of a primary or high school diploma or to facilitate entry into university. It is to provide the essentials of the mathematics, science and communications required to enable an adult to enter a skill training course or move directly into a job. A great deal of such upgrading can be accomplished in 52 weeks. It is common in most provinces to take an adult from functional illiteracy up to the completion of primary level, or from primary level up to the grade 10 level well within this limit. Moreover, experimental programs now under way may enable an adult to move through the equivalent of grades 1 to 10 within 52 weeks.

Modifications in the limits on the duration of training, with a view to providing flexibility if and when required, have been considered. These possible modifications raise questions such as: What larger proportion of available training resources would be devoted to serving relatively fewer trainees? What effect might the elimination or extension of the limits on training have on the incentive

Proceedings on Adjournment Motion for training institutions to make the qualitative improvements in training which are necessary to speed up the educational process? These are basic problems and are not easy to solve. So in reply to the points raised by the hon. member, may I say that the department, with the co-operation of the provinces, is working on ways and

means of providing shorter training courses tailored to the needs of the trainee.

Mr. Chas L. Caccia (Parliamenlory Secretary to Minister of Manpower and Immigration):

The hon. member for Algoma (Mr. Foster) is to be commended for having raised so promptly and effectively an issue of evident concern him, and for his desire to serve the interest of the people he represents. Judging from his remarks, it appears evident that one of the candidates for the leadership of the Ontario Progressive Conservative party was a little carried away.

The allegation by the Ontario minister that the grant discriminates against northern Ontario, the present base of the company's operations, because that area is not eligible for incentives, in nonsense. The facts are that northern Ontario is eligible for incentives and that the Department of Regional Economic Expansion would have provided the same 8 per cent to Falconbridge if the company had chosen to establish there rather than at Becancour. However, the company itself selected Becancour.

Motion agreed to and the House adjourned at 10.20 p.m.
