Mrs. Campagnolo:

Mr. Speaker, I have just been reading another of the factually inaccurate interviews given by the hon. member at various and sundry times in order to downgrade, if he can, the sale of Loto Canada tickets.

I note, also, that he is inaccurate again in the amount of the commission that is paid to the retailers. He mentions 45 cents a ticket and he has not noted that it has gone up to 80 cents. But then, of course, that is like his research into the Brink's

truck, which of course is indemnified. I find it passing strange that, regardless of what the hon. member says, he tries continually to downgrade the competence of the wholesalers and retailers of Loto Canada tickets, some of whom are in his own constituency and one of whom gave an interview this morning, if I am correct, saying that the hon. member was incorrect in the statements he made concerning the wholesalers in his own area.

Hon. Iona Campagnolo (Minister of State (Fitness and Amateur Sport)):

Mr. Speaker, it certainly indicates the vast research that the member goes through every day. It is the care and concern of the Brink's company that lost that bag, not Loto Canada.

Mrs. Campagnolo:

Mr. Speaker, I am very impressed with the hon. member's concern about our retailers and wholesalers, because his leader would put all 30,000 of them out of their jobs.

Mrs. Campagnolo:

In the matter of Miracle Mart, Loto Canada is obviously servicing an area which previously was not served well. There is no possibility of detracting from the sales of the existing retailers, and I think the hon. member should be just a little more careful in the way in which he demeans our wholesalers. There are 187 of them across the country and they are providing an extremely good service. The merchandising program entered into represents a normal business practice in any other type of corporation.

Mrs. Campagnolo:

Mr. Speaker, if that is so, I suppose it must have to do with the definition of what the media purchase would be in consideration of the 4 per cent figure. If, indeed, Loto Canada is in excess of that, I believe over a period of a year it would appear that we would be on a proper percentage basis. But there is no doubt that the books of Loto Canada would be open for such a discussion, provided all the provinces' lotteries were approached in exactly the same way. I think we could have a mutual auditing of books on this matter.
