Mr. Gillies:

If we want to talk about selective memories, we have seen one in operation. But my question is very simple and very important to the people of Canada. The question is simple, and I repeat what I asked: What has the minister done, what leverage is he applying against the multinational oil companies right now-not when we have another crisis, but right now-to ensure that under no circumstances will Canada be taken away from participating in the multinational oil pools?

Mr. James Gillies (Don Valley):

Mr. Speaker, 1 have a question for the right hon. Prime Minister arising from the answers given yesterday by the Minister of Finance as to the responsibilities of the Chairman of the National Commission on Inflation.

Seeing that the government is giving no guidelines and that it is giving total power to the chairman of that commission to find out what he thinks are excessive increases, and given the fact that he will then try to persuade people to change their views, whether it is labour, business or other segments of society, is this approach not a fundamental negation of the rule of law as it is supposed to be practised in a democratic country?
