July 11, 1988

Mr. Jacques Guilbault (Saint-Jacques):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question about the strike at Bell Canada.

Canadian consumers continue to experience problems with communications, especially those who require the installation of new equipment and those who need operator assistance to make their calls, and I am thinking especially of the handicapped.

Mr. Speaker, the Government has done very little so far to try and settle this dispute. All we have had was a kind of

Message from the Senate

homemade conciliation effort by an official from the Department. No conciliation commissioner, much less a mediator, has been appointed.

I would like to ask my question ...

Mr. Guilbault (Saint-Jacques):

... for the benefit of my "interrupters" opposite. I want to ask the Government to inform the House whether consumers should expect to face these problems for some time yet, or does the Government intend to take some kind of action to help reach a settlement? What does the Government intend to do to put an end to this strike? When is the Government going to wake up and help Quebec consumers, despite those turkeys who are trying to interrupt me?

July 7, 1988

Mr. Jacques Guilbault (Saint-Jacques):

Madam Speaker, I would like to say a few words on motion No. 2. As the Minister indicated earlier, he kindly accepted to withdraw his motion No. 1 in order to accept motion No. 2. Essentially, the amendment merely improves the Bill's wording, not its meaning.

Clause 1 proposes many things, for example, in paragraph c): "permet qu'on procede, au nom des employes, a Tinspec-tion et a la verification de la mine et des machines et appareils qui s'y trouvent, de la maniere et aux intervalles maximums reglementaires." That is, in fact, the wording of the proposed amendment. It's about the same as in the Bill, except that it reads better in French.

If Moliere were amongst us, he would be happy to see such an improvement in the wording of the Bill, not for the purpose of changing the substance of Bill C-124, but of expressing it in a more elegant or natural French. That is the sole objective of this motion which is moved by my colleague from York-Centre (Mr. Kaplan) and which I was happy to present on his behalf.
