Hon. Paul Marlineau (Pontiac-Temiscamin-gue):
Mr. Speaker, I have a supplementary question for the Minister of Northern Affairs. In his statement a few minutes ago he said that as these submerged resources do not lie within the boundaries of any province they therefore belong to the Federal Government. Does that mean the Government now prejudges the coming decision of the Supreme Court of Canada on this matter, the question having been referred to that body?
