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

program which we adopted in the House 15 days ago, it will be implemented without delay one year and a half before it was due to come on stream if we had not amended the act.
