RA

Gilles Grégoire

Mr. Gilles Gregoire (Lapointe):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Justice concerning also the subversive activities going on in Canada. I have actually asked this question many times already and the Minister was to give me an answer.

Inquiries of the Ministry

Is his department considering the advisability of inquiring into the legality of the operations of companies using rain-making machines in the areas of Saguenay, Lake St. John and Abitibi?

REPORT OF LAW SOCIETY RESPECTING ONTARIO SUPREME COURT JUDGE


On the orders of the day:


NDP

Francis Andrew Brewin

New Democratic Party

Mr. Andrew Brewin (Greenwood):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Justice which I asked him some time ago. Has he yet received and been unable to examine a communication from the Law Society of Upper Canada concerning the position of Mr. Justice Landreville? What is the nature of the communication and what, if anything, does he propose to do about this matter, which appears to cast a shadow on the administration of justice?

STEPS TO DEAL WITH FRAUDULENT BANKRUPTCIES


On the orders of the day:


PC

Paul Raymond Martineau

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Paul Mariineau (Poniiac-Temisca-mingue):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to direct a question to the Minister of Justice.

Can the Minister tell us if he intends to introduce in this house some measures to curb the ever increasing number of fraudulent bankruptcies which have attained an unprecedented figure since 1933? And when he replies I hope he will announce that the government will take other steps than what he told me when I asked him a similar question last year, namely, that the government was taking the matter under consideration.

Guy Favreau (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Liberal

Hon. Guy Favreau (Minister of Justice):

Mr. Speaker, I believe that the hon. member should ask this question without unilateral limit.

I must say that the complete revision of the Bankruptcy Act will not be completed for several months yet.

A new superintendent of bankruptcies has just been appointed, and his views will have to be sought on several aspects of all related matters. I can say that for the time being I am thinking of recommending to the government a measure which might, even though

(Mr. Gregoire.]

temporarily, correct some of the most urgent aspects of the problems.

That is all the information I can provide for the moment.

Mr. Eric A. Winkler (Grey-Bruce):

A supplementary question. Can the Minister say what happened to the previous Superintendent of Bankruptcy, and what position he is in at the present time?

Guy Favreau (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Liberal

Mr. Favreau:

I feel this matter is not one of great interest to the house, but I must say that the previous superintendent of bankruptcies has now been promoted to the office of investigation and research on combines.

Mr. Winkler:

A further supplementary question. May I ask the Minister whether he was promoted by strict rotation, or was there a competition for an open position?

Maurice Bourget (Speaker of the Senate)

Mr. Speaker:

Order. Surely there is not that sense of urgency that we need take up the time of the House at this moment.

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT-SUGGESTED RETENTION FOR TREASON


On the orders of the day:


PC

Almonte Douglas Alkenbrack

Progressive Conservative

Mr. A. D. Alkenbrack (Prince Edward-Len-nox):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Prime Minister. As a result of his report today of some of the facts and circumstances relating to the alleged treasonable acts of a certain Canadian citizen in serving the interests of a foreign power, will the Prime Minister from now on support the retention of capital punishment as the penalty for this and all other capital crimes against Canadian sovereignty and society?

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. I do not quite know how to subdivide the question into its various parts, but I think we had better leave it there.
