Mr. Keith Martin (Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca)

Mr. Speaker, I thank the Prime Minister for his candid answer.

My supplementary question concerns the MICMIC report which was a cost benefit analysis that was done on the military colleges and completed in May 1993. It was commissioned by the federal government.

It has as its primary recommendation that all military colleges be kept open. The previous government kept this report hidden and this government has kept this report hidden. Can the Prime Minister tell us why the report has continued to be kept hidden?

Mr. Keith Martin (Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca)

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Prime Minister.

On Monday, in response to a question from a member of the Bloc Quebecois, the Prime Minister said he is ready to help Quebec maintain Collège Militaire Royal de Saint-Jean as an institution of higher learning following closure of the military college.

Is the Prime Minister willing to make the same commitment in this House today to the people of British Columbia with respect to the future of Royal Roads Military College?

Mr. Keith Martin (Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca)

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Health.

As a physician I am appalled at the reduction of taxes on tobacco. It is going to create a quarter of a million new smokers among children. One-half of those children are going to die of smoking related illnesses and each of those children is going to have up to 20 years knocked off his or her lifespan.

Given the cost of the number one deterrent to young would be smokers, does she support her government's decision to reduce tobacco taxes?

Mr. Keith Martin (Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca)

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Deputy Prime Minister.

The minister should know that 40,000 Canadians die each year of smoking related illnesses and that billions of dollars are already spent every year on health care problems related to smoking.

Does the Deputy Prime Minister have any idea of how much this is going to cost our already overburdened health care system?

Mr. Keith Martin (Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca)

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the acting minister of health.

It is known that any reduction in the price of cigarettes will lead to increased consumption, especially among the youth. In fact it is predicted that a 10 per cent decrease in price will result in an 8 per cent in the overall consumption, especially a 15 per cent increase among adolescents and youth.

It is also estimated that these cuts that are proposed today will result in 800,000 new smokers of which a quarter of a million will be the youth.

Is it the official position of the ministry of health to support a bill that jeopardizes the health of Canadians, especially the youth?
