Mr. McRae:

Mr. Speaker, when I have occupied as much time on the floor of this House as the hon. member I am sure I will not need notes.

Mr. McRae:

I suggest that hon. members might look at the October 25 debate in order to see that four of the five members on this side who spoke referred to an involvement in the tar sands development; that three of the five were in favour of a national petroleum corporation, and that two were strongly interested in an all-Canadian pipeline, not one that commenced in Toronto or Sarnia but one that commenced in Manitoba using two links from the lakehead through Sault Ste. Marie.

I come from a great community which is totally dependent on the railroad. I spent 30, 40 or 50 hours with railroaders during the last strike,

Mr. McRae:

I think the oil could be tapped in at Sault Ste. Marie and run back at a future time. I should like to deal with one or two other items, but I see that my time is running out. Let me mention one final point. I feel I should deal with, although I would like to deal with other conservation aspects. I refer to the $1.90 export tax which I think all Canadians must realize-
