Most Recent Speeches (Page 3 of 372)


October 4, 1983

Mr. Korchinski:

How can we possibly be opposed to the Wheat Board when we were the originators of the Wheat Board? If they want to take us back to the 1930s, let us go back to the 1930s and let the world know who it was that was responsible for the Wheat Board. You know, Mr. Speaker, that most of the social legislation was originated by the

Western Grain Transportation Act Conservative Government, contrary to what the Liberals have been telling us up until now.

Mr. Korchinski:

Mr. Speaker, I have one more minute but I wish the mikes were turned on for everyone of those 15 jabbering commentators over there.

Mr. S. J. Korchinski (Mackenzie):

Madam Speaker, I have the honour to present a petition on behalf of 108 petitioners from Alberta who have sent a petition to the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce (Mr. Lumley), to the Hon. Member for Red Deer (Mr. Towers), the Hon. Member for Crow Foot (Mr. Malone) and the Hon. Member for Kinders-ley-Lloydminster (Mr. McKnight). They have asked me to present this to the House on their behalf to ask that the Minister and his Department make every effort to maintain the White Farm Equipment Company as a viable entity.

Mr. S. J. Korchinski (Mackenzie):

Mr. Speaker, I lived through the 1930s as a young boy and I am very glad to know

October 4, 1983

that the NDP, which grew up in the 1930s, or at least they had short pants in the 1930s, have suddenly come to defend the Wheat Board. Who in the world originated the Wheat Board, Mr. Speaker? Why did they originate the Wheat Board? It was the Conservative Government that saved the pools, my friend from the NDP, so 1 have no apologies to make for standing up here.

I notice the Hon. Member for Prince Albert (Mr. Hovdebo) taking off and the Hon. Member for Regina East (Mr. de Jong). All of a sudden it begins to register on them. They of all people should know something about the situation in western Canada.

You can make a lot of speeches in this House, Mr. Speaker, and as long as you are talking to a bunch of Liberals who do not have a clue what it is all about, as long as you have the representation in the NDP with only two Members with any remote relationship to the Wheat Board, then I suppose it is safe enough for you to say anything.

Our Party does not have that kind of representation. Fortunately, our Party has representation from rural parts of Canada and we are familiar with what has happened. We know what the Wheat Board stands for. The brother of the man who heads the Wheat Board is in my constituency, for your information, and I will be darned if 1 am going to go out there and talk against a voter of mine.

Mr. Korchinski:

I know he has an impact with his brother. I do not care how you look at it, for us even to consider that he needs one more helper is an affront to him. I do not think he needs it. He is a very capable man, in my estimation. I think the NDP, in their valiant efforts to latch on to something, have come to the support of the Wheat Board. They have had to because all they have to latch on to is a few representations, a few farm organizations coming forward and telling them, oh yes, we need this and we need that. They do not have a clue what is behind the whole thing. But they say on the surface that yes, that is it. They have no research or no idea of what is behind the whole thing.

I know what the Wheat Board did for us, and I have no apologies to make nor do 1 stand here to condemn the Wheat Board. But I do condemn the NDP for thinking that all of a sudden, by their phony amendments, they can come forward and think they are going to strengthen the Wheat Board or make it appear as if the Conservative Party is opposed to the Wheat Board.
