Mr. Speaker, I have a certain amount of respect for the hon. gentleman who just spoke. I believe his feet are on the ground. He is certainly not like his Leader, who probably gets up every morning and looks in the mirror and takes a bow. I would like to ask the hon. gentleman, if he is advocating an increase in the value of the dollar, whether he would like to make that policy statement on a wharfhead of a fish plant in the City of St. John's? I would like to ask him if he believes he would survive being hove off that wharf into the water? And if there are any ice pans there, he would be tabby-panning across to the south side hills.
Would the Hon. Member state clearly now whether it is the policy of the Progressive Conservative Party to bring up the value of the Canadian dollar, and how far, and would he admit it to the fish processors in Newfoundland and the fishermen, who do not receive enough in unemployment insurance benefits?
