Mr. Speaker, we care very much about the people affected by the ice storm. I am happy to announce today on behalf of the government and the hon. Minister of Finance that we will be extending the deadline for RRSPs to the end of March 1998 for those areas affected by the ice storm. This will enable them to get their financial house in order and ensure that they will be able to take full advantage of the RRSP contribution.
In the House of Commons on February 5th, 1998. See this statement in context.
