June 16, 1993

Mr. Rodriguez:

Mr. Speaker, on the Hill we have monuments which recognize individual contributions of Canadians. My proposal is to recognize the collective contributions made by immigrants who have come to Canada from all corners of the world as well as by the pioneers who helped to build the country that we know today as Canada.

Mr. Rodriguez:

Madam Speaker, the purpose of this bill is to close an existing loophole in the Trust and Loan Companies Act which allows executives to borrow unlimited amounts of money from their companies in order to purchase company shares.

Mr. Rodriguez:

Madam Speaker, second, Mr. Larry Duchesne did not make his money lobbying government for his private interests.

My supplementary question for the Prime Minister is this. The Prime Minister is fond of saying that you dance with the one who brung you. Well, by golly, the lobbyists and the Tories are still dancing. I might add they are not ballroom dancing, they are dancing the lambada.

Given that the Tory leadership candidates are continuing to boogie with lobbyists, the question that I and many Canadians want to ask the Prime Minister is this. Is this not a clear signal that it is better to know the Prime Minister than to be the Prime Minister?
