Mr. Speaker, that is a very good question. The Leader of the Opposition has adumbrated that this is indeed a very important question. He has suggested rather than just have a tax cut that we have a rebate. That could be a very real possibility.
I wish that whoever drafted the motion had talked to the Leader of the Opposition first, because he might have indicated that maybe just cutting gas prices will not be passed on. When there are fluctuations at the pump of five or six cents a day, a one and a half cent cut, even if there were goodwill to try to pass it on, would not even be noticed by the people. This is why the government is looking very seriously at the issue and is looking at other mechanisms for ensuring that a reduction of these very onerous fuel prices for all Canadians will have the best impact in terms of where they are most needed.
