Mr. St. Julien:

Further to the Hon. Member's comments, I would point out to this House that I listened carefully to what was said by the Hon. Members for Prince Albert (Mr. Hov-debo), York West (Mr. Marchi) and Laval-des-Rapides (Mr. Garneau). I would like to say that if we really look at what has been done about this legislation in past years, under the Liberals, for instance, if we refer to the riding of Abitibi, I think there is something very odd because they kept it the same size. If they are interested in what the situation is like in the riding of Abitibi, I shall add that it is located in the largest of our ten Canadian provinces, covers 740,000 square kilometers and has a population of 102,000. And it is going to stay the same size. My comment to the Hon. Member for York West mainly concerns the budget of each Member.

The Hon. Member for York West may think that is bizarre, but the important thing is to tell the Liberals not to travel outside Canada and to stay in their ridings. That is what I have been doing since I was elected to the House of Commons. I avoid travelling outside Canada. I travel in my riding.

And I can guarantee that my riding, which is among the fifteen largest ridings in Canada, is nearly 75 per cent Conservative. And today, among the smallest ridings in Canada, there are about ten that belong to the Liberals, and I am talking about ridings covering five square kilometers, with 69,000 voters.

Personally, I think the Bill is an excellent one, and I live in one of the largest ridings in Canada. I work very hard in my riding, and in my view, this is a very good Bill.

December 12, 1985

Mr. Guy St-Julien (Abitibi):

Mr. Speaker, 1 would like to take this opportunity to talk about the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement, the Northeastern Quebec Agreement, and political autonomy. As you may know, the James Bay Agreement and the Northeastern Quebec Agreement are the first two over-all settlements of territorial disputes in Canada. They were signed in 1975 and 1978. These agreements are still the most wide-ranging settlements ever concluded with native peoples. They deal with all aspects of Northeastern Quebec economic, social and political development.

The agreements define the structure within which Northeastern Quebec is to develop so as to enable Indian communities and interests to develop and progress in accordance with their own plans. Canada and Quebec also benefit from the agreements as a result of the economic fall-out which Canadians reap from Northeastern Quebec hydroelectric projects in Abitibi.

As to political development, the agreements provide for the establishment of a public administration over Inuit territory and political autonomy over Cree and Naskapi territory.

The Cree-Naskapi Act was adopted in 1984, and it applies exclusively to Northeastern Quebec. Cree and Naskapi bands already enjoy legal autonomy status, more decision-making authority, grants and other benefits.

Other bands will soon be entitled to similar benefits as political autonomy becomes reality elsewhere in Canada, in keeping with the policies announced by the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development.
