QUEBEC-LONGSHOREMEN'S STRIKE-REPORTED UNWILLINGNESS OF UNION TO SUBMIT TO ARBITRATION-POSSIBILITY OF INQUIRY COMMISSION

PC

Jack Burnett Murta

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Jack Murta (Lisgar):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct my question to the Acting Prime Minister. It is supplementary to those asked about the labour dispute in Montreal. It concerns the minister's announcement yesterday that the parties to the dispute in the longshoremen's strike in Montreal would submit to arbitration, and an article in today's Globe and Mail which quotes a longshoreman spokesman as saying that all that was discussed with the minister was the setting up of a commission of inquiry and that the union did not want to submit to arbitration.

Hon. Mitchell Sharp (Acting Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, this is in substance much the same as the question already asked by the hon. member for Sainte-Marie. 1 will try to get an answer before the question period is over.

Can the Acting Prime Minister inform the House whether the government is contemplating setting up a commission of inquiry and will this commission have representatives of western agricultural interests on it?

COMPLAINT AGAINST STATEMENT BY JUDGE THAT USE OF ALCOHOL CAUSE OF PROBLEMS

PC

Lincoln MacCauley Alexander

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Lincoln M. Alexander (Hamilton West):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Minister of Justice a question of which I have given notice. Has the hon. gentleman received a letter from the British Columbia Association of Non-Status Indians complaining about the conduct, in terms of language, of a British Columbia Supreme Court Justice, Mr. Justice Gould, in the course of a judgment in which he said the problems of Indians arose from alcohol? Is the minister in receipt of this letter calling for an inquiry and the dismissal of the judge in question, and can he advise the House what action he intends to take?

Hon. Otto E. Lang (Minister of lustice):

I have not yet looked at the letter or considered the nature of the complaint. I will do so, of course, and decide at that time whether any action is warranted.

Lincoln MacCauley Alexander

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Alexander:

I realize this is a tricky issue, but in view of repeated utterances of such a nature which are certainly affecting the well-being of our native peoples, would the minister take it upon himself to issue a directive or statement for the benefit of the judiciary making it clear that this type of thing cannot be tolerated?

Mr. Speaker:

That, of course, is a suggestion or a representation. It is not a question seeking information.

REQUEST FOR GRANT TO HALL OF FAME IN TORONTO

PC

Robert Simpson

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Robert Simpson (Churchill):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Secretary of State. In his absence I will direct it to the Acting Secretary of State. In view of the fact that large amounts of money are allotted annually on behalf of culture and art, is the hon. gentleman aware of the deplorable fact that the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame in Toronto is reported to be entirely without financial support or assistance to allow for proper maintenance and improvement of facilities? Will the Acting Secretary of State look into this situation and make every effort to

provide a moderate source of financial assistance for this worthy project?

Lucien Lamoureux (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Mr. Speaker:

The Chair will allow someone to reply on behalf of the government but I would think the second part of the question is not really a question but rather a representation. Perhaps the parliamentary secretary might reply to that part of the question which is in order.
