November 20, 1984

Mr. Harvey:

Mr. Speaker, I should like to suggest to my hon. friend that the parameters which are used as the basis for some economic forecasts may change considerably following a major political realignment.

The Address-Mr. La Salle

Mr. Speaker, the cutbacks which have been made, 1 am sure . . . As a matter of fact, concerning the loss of jobs resulting from the budgetary restraint measures, 1 shall show in a moment that an administration should not try to create employment by simply increasing the deficit. Liberal governments over the past 20 years, but more specifically over the past five have clearly demonstrated that truism. They have multiplied the number of the unemployed by seven over the past 12 years, while the number of people on the labour market has certainly not increased sevenfold. The new government must therefore do things differently. It is going to create new full time jobs with the co-operation of the private sector, especially on the basis of research and development. That is the area where it should make its major investment effort over the next four years in its search for new orientations. I am sure that the temporary programs will remain, but I feel that we should not put the major emphasis on make-work programs. We should have an economic and political orientation directed toward permanent job creation. We must find openings for our young people in industry. It is clear that small ditch clearing jobs are all right for a while, but there is more challenging work to be done, and that is what our young people want, Mr. Speaker.
