Mr. Speaker, ever since the Big Brother affair, we have been aware of this government's propensity to gather information on just about everybody. The worrisome facts that have been released today in connection with the Canada Information Office worry us a great deal.
Can the Minister of Public Works tell us whether there are many files on people at the CIO, like the one on journalists? Is there, for instance, one on intellectuals, artists, business people, politicians and sovereignists? If so, what is in them?
