Mr. Jean-CIaude Malepart (Laurier-Sainte-Marie):

Mr. Speaker, the answer is quite simple. The reason why Quebec is in better financial shape is because it has a competent Finance Minister, a Liberal one, while here in Ottawa we have a Minister who is a Tory and incompetent.

Mr. Jean-CIaude Malepart (Laurier-Sainte-Marie):

Mr. Speaker, my supplementary question is for the Minister responsible for National Health and Welfare.

I spoke to Mr. Tobin, the Health Department toxicology official, and he told me that the Health Department, which is also responsible for the environment, had not been informed and that he too knew that the Environment Department had previously been notified.

Can the Minister tell us how come his Department did not conduct a thorough study of the health consequences for people who may have used (contaminated) gasoline or heating oil, advising them of the potential dangers of cancer and liver disease?

Is the Minister of National Health and Welfare able to reassure the people on that?

Hon. Perrin Beatty (Minister of National Health and

Welfare): Mr. Speaker, my Department does regular samplings of foods from across the country to look for contaminants that may be in the food chain. Never at any time have we found excess amounts of PCBs, dioxins or furans in the last several years. In addition, the Ontario Ministry of the Environment has monitored some 60 water treatment plants for PCBs since 1987 and have found no excess PCBs in water around Ontario during that time.

Mr. Jean-CIaude Malepart (Laurier-Sainte-Marie):

Mr. Speaker, it is sad that the silence of the Prime Minister and the Minister involved prove beyond any doubt that working people were misled during the last election campaign.

I will give our national "Charlie Brown" a chance to correct himself.

My question is for the Right Hon. the Prime Minister. Following the statement by the Minister for International Trade that mentions beyond any doubt that he consulted you and that the people could be reassured that nothing would be changed in the unemployment insurance program to penalize them, why- Can the Prime Minister answer this question?

August 18, 1988

Mr. Jean-CIaude Malepart (Montreal-Sainte-Marie):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to ask the Deputy Prime Minister a supplementary question.

Should the Deputy Prime Minister not get an answer or should the Opposition not be satisfied with the answers the Deputy Prime Minister gives us, would the Deputy Prime Minister be prepared to allow the Hon. Member for Rosemont to testify before a Committee of the House of Commons so that an investigation can be held and this matter cleared up, because these accusations, following all the patronage of the last four years, affect the credibility of all Members of this House. It is therefore important, before an election campaign, that any suspicion be removed.

Would the Deputy Prime Minister be prepared to allow the Member for Rosemont to testify before a Committee of the House of Commons?
