Mr. Ogle:

The second group of people consisted of the priest and the Levite, officially good people going down to the temple to pray. They saw the man, but he had a problem, he was half dead and this might make them unclean so that they could not pray, the law would not let them pray. Their principle of life was: What is mine is mine. But the poor Samaritan did not know all those rules; all he knew was that there was a person in distress, a person in need. So he stopped, and not knowing it all, picked him up, put him on his animal and looked after him. The last person's principle of life was: What is mine is ours. That is what I believe.

Mr. Ogle:

Mr. Speaker, I am very much aware of the fact that a plan has been put into effect to study the future, but I would like to suggest that once the gate is open and the cows are out, it is too late to close the gate. In view of the fact that in addition to the situation in Newfoundland, over 40 per cent of the doctors in Prince Edward Island have opted out of medicare and 18 per cent to 20 per cent of doctors in Ontario have done likewise, will the minister now bring legislation into this House to reverse this serious cutback in health services in Canada and allow the former 50-50 formula to be reintroduced in order to avoid the current crisis?
