have a question for the Prime Minister. I am repeating a question I asked several days ago, in reply to which the Prime Minister promised to make inquiries. Has the Prime Minister received a request on behalf of the province of Ontario for assistance in providing relief to the flood victims in southwestern Ontario who suffered severe damage early in February? If so, what decision has been reached?
Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Acting Prime Minister. Has the federal government received a request from the government of Ontario for assistance in providing relief to the people of southwestern Ontario who suffered severe flood damage in the early part of February? If so, what decision has been reached?
Mr. Speaker, in view of the statement by the Secretary of State in answer to my question yesterday, has the Prime Minister been informed of the Ontario government's request for federal assistance for flood relief in southwestern Ontario? If so, has a favourable decision concerning such relief been reached?
