Mr. Speaker, earlier today the task force on year 2000 issued its report entitled “A Call For Action”. It has highlighted the importance of this pressing issue as a national issue for Canadian business, as an international issue as it affects transactions across the border, and indeed as a global issue. It has given a number of recommendations for business to follow.
I am going to ensure that this report is considered by the Standing Committee on Industry at its earliest possible convenience. I am making it available to my counterparts both federally and provincially. Together we need to see that Canadian industry is ready for January 1, 2000.
