Mr. Steven E. Paproski (Edmonton Centre):
Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43 I ask the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion concerning a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. It arises out of the uncertainty and uneasiness caused by the statement circulated in the mass media that the government has adopted an employment policy that violates the principle of non-discrimination which parliament has enshrined in several statutes including the Public Service Employment Act, the Canada Fair Employment Practices Act and the Canadian Bill of Rights.
I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Gander-Twillingate (Mr. Lundrigan):
That the Standing Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs be instructed to inquire into the administration of the Public Service Employment Act, the Canada Fair Employment Practices Act and the employment practices of the Treasury Board with particular reference to the observance of the principle of non-discrimination.
Subtopic: PUBLIC SERVICE
Sub-subtopic: OBSERVANCE OF PRINCIPLE OF NON-DISCRIMINATION-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
