Hon. John Bosley (Don Valley West):
Mr. Speaker, I have a feeling that some of the comments that have just been made are likely to be quoted fairly widely as a result of this speech. In order that we do that fairly, I think we want to be quite clear as to what it is the hon. member has actually said. I just want to be sure, because he said a couple of things and I want to make sure that I got them right.
I take it that politicians are the worst managers in the world. He puts himself in that class as one of the worst managers in the world, and therefore we should take his advice about management because he is one of the worst managers in the world-if I understood what he is saying.
Second, is it now the policy of the Liberal Party-I take it that is the extension of the member's comments- that all services should in fact be centralized in Ottawa where they can be best delivered?
I am sure this has nothing to do with the fact that the majority of the constituents of the member's riding are federal public servants; it is a policy view of the member and of the party. However I want to be clear that he thinks services should in fact be centralized in Ottawa and that, to quote him, "Winnipeg and Victoria" and I take it by extension Toronto and Montreal "are the boonies of Canada".
