Mr. G. W. Baldwin (Peace River):
Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43 I ask the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion with regard to a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.
This matter concerns the general critical unemployment crisis confronting the nation at this moment and specifically the disproportionate percentage among the youth of this nation, resulting in the critical social disorder and unrest manifested yesterday in Victoria and forecast in other parts of Canada.
With unanimous consent I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Gander-Twillingate (Mr. Lundri-gan):
That this House urge the government to immediately hold emergency discussions with the provinces to develop and implement an urgent plan of action to bring relief to the problem and that the House urge the government to bring in immediate amendments to the Unemployment Insurance Act and the Canada Assistance Plan to bring immediate relief to the unemployed and those in need of social assistance.
