Mr. J. Lawrence:

Under the present provisions of the National Transportation Act regarding Bell Canada as interpreted in the Interprovincial Pipe Line case in the Federal Court of Appeal, it was held that a parent company can be required to disclose information from all of its subsidiaries in a form required by the regulator. By virtue of this interpretation of the provision of the National Transportation Act, we think the present provision in clause 12, which in effect says that BCE will now be treated the same as Bell Canada would under those provisions, is going to be adequate without adding the word "affiliates" into the clause.

The Hon. Member for Mount Royal then went on to ask another question which was answered as follows:

Mr. J. Lawrence:

That is right. As presently interpreted by the court-and that is a court ruling of the Federal Court of Appeal. It is a very high court.

I wanted to put that on the record to ensure that Hon. Members understand that evidently the CRTC is happy with Clause 12 as it now stands and advises against any amendment. The CRTC has considerable experience in regulating Bell Canada. If the CRTC is happy with that clause, I for one am prepared to accept it and to pass judgment on it by voting against the amendment.
