Mr. Simpson:

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Prime Minister whether he would again outline to the House the plans of the government regarding any contribution to the 1976 Olympic games.

Mr. Simpson:

Perhaps I can put a direct question to the Prime Minister since this is a very important matter and the House will not be sitting for some time.

Mr. Robert Simpson (Churchill):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Prime Minister. In view of the statement by a member of the Canadian Olympic Committee that the 1976 Olympic games scheduled for Montreal will be a disaster unless the federal government contributes upward of $500 million, and in view of the Prime Minister's report to the House that the federal government did not intend to contribute to the summer Olympics, does the Prime Minister not agree that an expenditure of this magnitude would be more beneficially spent on the Canadian economy as a whole instead of on one specific area?

Mr. Robert Simpson (Churchill):

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I have a question for the Minister of Supply and Services. In view of the great concern being evidenced both in Churchill, Manitoba, and Winnipeg regarding a reported change in policy which would mean that the annual requirements of the Keewatin area in the Northwest Territories would be supplied out of Montreal instead out of the port of Churchill as has been the case for many years, can the minister inform the House whether in fact supplies are to go out of Montreal instead of Churchill this summer?
