POLLUTION

POLLUTION OF CANADIAN SHORE BY CHERRY POINT OIL SPILL-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

David Samuel Horne MacDonald

Progressive Conservative

Mr. David MacDonald (Egmont):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the terms of Standing Order 43 to move a motion in a case of urgent and pressing necessity. The subject matter has to do with the oil spill which occurred last Sunday at the ARCO oil refinery at Cherry Point, Washington, which is now being carried by the tides and currents into Canadian waters and polluting Canadian shores south of Vancouver. I would hope the unanimous consent of the House would be given, in which case I would move the following motion, seconded by the hon. member for Calgary North (Mr. Woolliams):

That the Standing Committee on External Affairs and National Defence be empowered to examine and inquire into the oil spill at Cherry Point and the consequent infringement of Canadian sea and territorial sovereignty; and to relate its findings to studies on public hearings conducted on the west coast into the TAPS oil tanker route and oil transfer and refinery terminals; and to have power to travel from place to place both in Canada and elsewhere.

Since the Standing committee is now on the west coast, I would hope it might begin this inquiry immediately.

FOULING OF CRESCENT BEACH BY CHERRY POINT OIL

SPILL-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

NDP

Barry Mather

New Democratic Party

Mr. Barry Mather (Surrey-White Rock):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Having in mind the oil spill that occurred at Cherry Point, a few miles from the riding of Surrey-White Rock, which has resulted in oil slicks drifting ashore at or near Crescent Beach in that riding, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Comox-Alberni (Mr. Barnett):

(a) That this House approve immediate federal action to help clean up and protect the affected area; (b) to provide that no economic loss be suffered by the people of that area; and (c) that what has happened be drawn forcefully to the attention of the government of the United States as constituting a small sample of the inevitable ecological dangers and disasters that will follow the transportation of oil by tanker along our western coast.
