Mr. Douglas (Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask one more question. The minister has now conceded that Petro-Canada only has the authdrity, under the legislation which set it up, to import oil if the government so decides and, if the legislation which is now before the House passes, if the allocation board so decides. Could the minister tell the House where the authority to make Petro-Canada the sole importer of oil is contained in any legislation, if the minister insists on rejecting this amendment proposed by the hon. member for Sault Ste. Marie?
