Mr. Cournoyer said Quebec's bill was passed in response to the federal amendment and Ot- tawa was not consulted. "It is a reaction to Ottawa's decision; we are certainly no going to consult them about he said. Mr. Coirrnoyer said the work ers affected are semi-publi workers, because they work fo institutions supported by th government'. They should not have to pay unemployment insurance be- cause job security was a term of their collective agreements.

But the north had special priori- ,ies, needs and interests and it was up to governments to face, up to this. "It's true that the over- whelming majority of Canadi- ans live in a thin line along the aorder between Canada and the United States. But that thin line isn't Canada and we must not forget it."

Earlier, Mr. Stanfield held a one-hour meeting with village elders in a one-room log cabin in the Indian community of Rae, 70 miles west of here. He sipped tea as members of the Dogrib tribe listed some of the difficulties facing Indians in tihe north.
