Mr. Speaker, the hon. member is reacting as though this is some sort of surprise. The position of the government has been obvious for many months.
First we introduced the hardest hitting anti-tobacco legislation in the western world. We put it before the House and the House adopted it. Then we made it clear in relation to the international auto sport in Montreal that we were to provide an exemption for sponsorship. That is the position of the government.
Let us move on to implement the Tobacco Act and implement the anti-smoking strategy we have in mind to make sure young people do not start.
