Mr. Gilles Caouette (Temiscamingue):
Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of Regional Economic Expansion. Following the $34,876,000 subsidiary agreement on public equipment reached in May, 1978, between Quebec and Ottawa, each project was identified by its location when the agreement was signed, except an amount of $1.2 million which was earmarked for the Abitibi-Temiscamingue area. My question is as follows: Since that amount specifically represents the value of a project suggested by Noranda and since that town was the only municipality from northwest Quebec to submit a project when the agreement was concluded, could the minister say whether the 1.2 million will be granted to Noranda or as according to a recent report, whether it will be granted to the Val d'Or municipality?
