Mr. Speaker, there is indeed a very important debate to have in the House as one proceeds on profound structural change. In the case of the GST, the government intends to engage in that structural change as it is engaged in structural change in other areas. There will be adjustment policies that may well be necessary to pay compensation.
I would be quite prepared to get into that debate with the members of the Reform Party, those who have indicated a capability to enter into that kind of thing.
I do not intend, however, to enter into that kind of debate with the hon. member. The allegation he made at the beginning is absolutely untrue. I will raise a question of privilege and ask him to stand and withdraw the comment.
