April 10, 1970

Mr. Caccia:

The answer cannot be as short as the question, but it would seem to me the question is based on the assumption that one policy excludes the other and that therefore we have a choice between one or the other. I do not believe it is a choice between black and white many other factors have to be taken into consideration.

Mr. Caccia:

Yes, Mr. Speaker, at the end of my speech. I do not know whether the hon. member for Oshawa-Whitby took the trouble-I hope he did-to mention the necessity of a manpower policy aimed at older workers. This area deserves attention in our society which makes obsolete people who do not have the benefit of certain training.

We also see in some segments of the industry a pattern, which seems to be repeating itself, whereby certain industries are not able to remain competitive and have to close down and put out of work a high percentage of older employees. I believe this area requires our attention if only to ensure that we do at least the minimum in helping those who have not been able to secure employment so far because of limited education and a modest technical background.

In conclusion, one can only assume that the motion put forward by the hon. member for Oshawa-Whitby is based on isolated cases. That may be quite legitimate, but it does not give the total picture of the effect the manpower policy has on the development of the human resources of our nation. In this respect, altnough no politician would ever be able to say that $250 million a year is enough or will ever be sufficient, with the resources available and within the limitations that exist I think the record of the Canadian nation in the field of manpower training is pretty outstanding.

Mr. Caccia:

Mr. Speaker, I wonder whether hon. members would consent to extending this debate into the private members' hour.

Mr. Caccia:

Mr. Speaker, this type of question can best be pursued in committee. Per-

Statute Law Amendment Act, 1970 haps the hon. member for Kenora-Rainy River (Mr. Reid) could reply.

Mr. Caccia:

Mr. Speaker, I believe the understanding was that if motion No. 9 were defeated, motion No. 10 would be put to the House and agreed to unanimously.
