Division No. 316  Mr. Speaker, I do not think I was linking tuition and equalization directly. My point was on the issue of mobility, that this was a statement of values, that students should not be impeded in terms of their ability to go from province to province for the course outline they wish

Division No. 316  Mr. Speaker, I was with the hon. parliamentary secretary until he got to his last point and then one does not necessarily need to comment on the patently obvious. I appreciate the hon. member's intervention which I think is actually quite enlightening and very helpful. The point

Division No. 316  Mr. Speaker, I am touched to the core by the hon. member's acute observations on the parsement of the speech. I asked some fairly simple and fundamental questions which for the Reform Party is somewhat more of a challenge than it can usually meet. The issue of transparency is so

Division No. 316  Mr. Speaker, I thank you for this opportunity to rise on this debate and to discuss the equalization transfers. Prior to the previous speaker, I was wondering who was the biggest whiner in Confederation, Mr. Bouchard or Mr. Harris. Having listened to the previous member I am inc

Supply  Mr. Speaker, I am not entirely sure that I understood the question, if in fact there was a question. I apologize to the hon. member. I was listening carefully. We could do one of several things. We could move up the bottom. Once in the tax system we could put some credits on and

Supply  Mr. Speaker, it is a good question and I appreciate it. In my view that is a worthwhile motion and a worthwhile goal. It is something that the government has attempted to move toward. It is always put in the context of realism. The first realism is limitations on government reven

Supply  Mr. Speaker, if I had my way I would entirely separate out the EI account just like we handle it off books and deal with it that way instead of getting into this whole fictional exercise. The hon. member opposite does not appreciate that if there is a surplus of $13 billion, $17

Supply  Mr. Speaker, I would like to mention at the outset that I will be splitting my time with the hon. member for St. Paul's. I would also like to thank the House for this opportunity to speak on the motion as put forward by the Progressive Conservative Party. I will take the opportu

Supply  Madam Speaker, the hon. member's question has a certain logic to it which needs to be addressed in an unemotional and logical way. It is true that the volume of water remains constant in the environment. It may be placed here or placed there or misplaced or misused. The response

Supply  Madam Speaker, I appreciate the opportunity to speak to this motion. Recently I had the occasion to be in Washington. While there, I and some of my colleagues had the opportunity to speak with Ambassador Chr├ętien about this particular subject. His comments were quite interesting

Supply  Madam Speaker, the first reaction should not be an overreaction. The first reaction is to read the case which is 21 pages and to review the reasoning of the judge. If we review the reasoning of the judge we will see it is clearly flawed. That is the first response we would have.

Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank the hon. member for the question. First, the decision was issued on January 13. As I understand, within the week the British Columbia attorney general appealed the decision. Within the following week, one week before parliament was recalled, the Attorney G

Finance  Madam Speaker, I thought I heard that the member opposite wished to obtain a tax cut in the area of the GST. Does the member know how much the GST raised for the federal government? What was the net effect of the moneys that were raised? How much did that contribute to the federa

Finance  Madam Speaker, I do not know whether within a minute I can deal with the simple-minded correlation between the issue of tax cuts and proper management of the economy. It is true that Ontario at this point is experiencing something of a renaissance and that there is a great deal
