Hon. Pierre H. Cadieux (Minister of State (Fitness and Amateur Sport) and Minister of State (Youth) and Deputy Leader of the Government in the House of Commons):

Madam Speaker, as I just said the minister will certainly get back to my hon. colleague.

Mediation did not go as well as it was supposed to, I can share that with my hon. colleague. As a former Minister of Labour I did not like it when mediation did not go as well as it should have. Mediation involves parties. The parties have to be willing to mediate. I am sure the minister will give it his full attention on his return.

Hon. Pierre H. Cadieux (Minister of State (Fitness and Amateur Sport) and Minister of State (Youth) and Deputy Leader of the Government in the House of Commons):

Madam Speaker, as the hon. member knows the Minister of Labour is out of the House today on government business. He will be in a better position to answer the question on his return.

However, I wish to underline the fact that the Minister of Labour has been very much involved with this particular issue. It is a very difficult and complicated one. As far as I can recall he did everything that could be done at the time, bearing in mind the different legalities involved, et cetera.

I am sure the minister will respond personally to the hon. member when he returns.

Hon. Pierre H. Cadieux (Minister of State (Fitness and Amateur Sport) and Minister of State (Youth) and Deputy Leader of the Government in the House of Commons):

Again, Madam Speaker, this government is working not only for the students of Canada but all Canadians. One of the best ways to make sure that our young people, particularly students, have a chance in the future is to put all the instruments in place so that they can face the challenges they will be facing all their lives, bearing in mind all the changes that are coming about and bearing in mind the situation they will be faced with in the year 2000.

That is exactly what we are doing, and in particular in Manitoba.

Hon. Pierre H. Cadieux (Minister of State (Fitness and Amateur Sport) and Minister of State (Youth) and Deputy Leader of the Government in the House of Commons):

Madam Speaker, the weekend demonstrated very clearly that we are far from waiting for our demise. On the contrary, I think the hon. member will feel that those benches are very comfortable when we come back after the election.

The money was not cut back. This year alone the budget was increased by $5.1 million. If the students in my hon. friend's riding are confused, perhaps they spend too much time in his office.

Hon. Pierre H. Cadieux (Minister of State (Fitness and Amateur Sport) and Minister of State (Youth) and Deputy Leader of the Government in the House of Commons):

Again, Madam Speaker, as the Deputy Prime Minister says, they were not excluded. They were pretty well included and inclusive at the convention this weekend.

Whenever the opposition refers to the SEED program it isolates the SEED part of the program from the total Challenge program which was redone in 1988 by the then minister in order to deal with the students at risk, the ones who were dropping out of school. The moneys have not been reduced. They have been increased this year alone by $5.1 million.
