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.

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased that my hon. friend is finding reason for satisfaction somewhere in Canada, particularly in his present situation. The Hon. Member's point on targets is always debatable, as to whether one is desirable or not. However, the Government has a target, which is to help in the creation of the greatest number of jobs possible. As the Minister of State for Finance said a moment ago, the objective is for all Canadians to find gainful employment in Canada. That is the target.

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