Right Hon. P. E. Trudeau (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, I am sorry, but I am not aware of the situation. If the Hon. Member had given me advance notice, I could have checked the facts.

Nevertheless, I object to the Hon. Member's insinuation, and this is typical of the Official Opposition, that we are discriminating against the West. Mr. Speaker, I do not know what the situation is in Vancouver compared to Toronto. If the situation is as the Hon. Member says, I would be surprised if similar circumstances did not exist in Halifax or Moncton, for instance.

So are we discriminating against the West or against the East? I would be surprised if there were not some orchestra in

Quebec whose circumstances were a bit different from the one in Toronto. Why does the Official Opposition insist on spreading the myth of systematic bashing of Western Canada by the Government? This comes up in all their questions, and I am sick and tired of it!

Right Hon. P. E. Trudeau (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, now I understand the Member is making a representation. It may well be a valid one. If I do teach political science in the future, I will make it the subject of a thesis for one of my students.

Right Hon. P. E. Trudeau (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, I did not say that we were unable to make a decision about Vancouver. I said the Hon. Member did not have the courtesy of giving me notice of the question; therefore I do not know the answer. I did object to his insinuation that we are discriminating against the West, which is a pure fabrication on his part, which is added on to the question and which has nothing to do with the difference between the orchestra in Vancouver and that in Toronto. But it will not be the first time that pettiness emerges from the other side.

Right Hon. P. E. Trudeau (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, 1 have no knowledge of the facts or of whether an investigation has taken place. I presume the Hon. Member is not making an allegation. If he is, we will investigate. If he is just stirring up dirt, then I will not investigate.
