Ontario Hansard - 28-October1977

Hon. Mr. Davis: I don't want the leader of the New Democratic Party to be personally oversensitive. I have never suggested that the reason we are less competitive in some products -- and I emphasize "some" -- is because of wages alone. I have never suggested that, and I'm not suggesting it here on this occasion. There are a number of ingredients that go into the competitive position which some of our industries find themselves in. Part of it is a question of wages; I'm not going to minimize that. Part of it is a question of taxation. Part of it is a question of geographic location. Part of it is a question of the size of market.
