Hon. Jean-Luc Pepin (Minister for External Relations):

Mr. Speaker, I think that a few of my colleagues and myself gave all the necessary explanations on Friday. We listed all the programs which had been implemented for some time in all sectors such as the creation of jobs for the young and not so young, the training program, another one for young people in the fisheries sector and in the environment sector. We listed all those programs, and complete lists are available to the Hon. Member.

Obviously, I have never heard anything about regional Ministers allegedly delaying the implementation of those programs. I think they are more sensible than that. It is in our own interest to create jobs and promote job creation as rapidly as possible. I cannot imagine where the Hon. Member has heard such remarks. As to the western grain stabilization

Hon. Jean-Luc Pepin (Acting Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, there is a great diversity of programs. The programs announced a few weeks ago by the Secretary of State for Youth include a diversity of jobs. There is nothing in the list which says that these jobs are only available for males. These jobs are available for females as well as males. The totality of the programs, the training programs that-

Hon. Jean-Luc Pepin (Acting Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, I have always thought that my hon. friend was an honest man. I do not believe he is particularly attractive politically- neither am I-but I always thought my hon. friend would respect the truth. By quoting me as having said yesterday that unemployed young people are lazy, I believe he was breaking down the basic ABC of academic propriety. I am quite sad about that.

What I said was that in establishing the statistics of unemployment there were different degrees of certainty. In other words, we were certain of the conventional way of establishing unemployment figures among the youth, if you follow the four weeks' searching and availability criteria of Statistics Canada.

I said, with respect to what is called the "hidden unemployment", that there were differing degrees of uncertainty. In some cases a person would have given up after trying hard. In other cases some people might not have tried hard enough, simply being lazy. If the Hon. Member reads Hansard he will find it is all there. I would be grateful if he did me the favour of reading what I said.

As the Hon. Member for St. John's East said, it might have been unwise of me, but you cannot teach an old dog new tricks. If you like academic debate, you bite into it. I would have thought that my old friend would pay me the respect of reading what I said and not distort it.

With respect to Manitoba, I am very pleased to see progress being made. However, again, if one wanted to be totally honest about it, one would have to look at the extent of the support which the federal Government has given to the Government of Manitoba in recent months.
