SUGGESTED COMPLIANCE WITH CANADIAN LAWS BY COMMONWEALTH SHIPS ENGAGED IN CANADIAN COASTAL TRADE

PC

Robert Jardine McCleave

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Robert McCleave (Halifax-East Hants):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Prime Minister. I will not ask any supplementaries. I am addressing it to him since the subject matter involves several departments. Will he direct his ministers to ensure that Commonwealth ships engaged in the coastal trade of Canada obey such Canadian laws as wages, income tax, hours of work, unemployment insurance-in short, all other Canadian laws than the Canada Shipping Act which is being enforced against them mercifully?

Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a question to the Prime Minister.

Could he tell this House what particular representations he has made in order to bring about a change in the decision of Hockey Canada regarding the exclusion of certain stars from the team which will represent Canada against the USSR?

Right Hon. P. E. Trudeau (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, these representations have been made publicly to everyone's knowledge. I have written letters to the three organizations concerned: Hockey Canada, the Players Association and the National Hockey League, asking them to put Canada's interest above their concerns.

INQUIRY AS TO IMPLEMENTATION OF DARLING REPORT RECOMMENDATIONS

NDP

John Leroy Skoberg

New Democratic Party

Mr. John L. Skoberg (Moose Jaw):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Transport. In view of foreign flag vessels using foreign crews in our coastal waters, which results in the loss of many jobs for Canadians, can the Minister of Transport now advise the House when he will implement the recommendations of the Darling report on coastal shipping concerning this issue?

Hon. Donald C. Jamieson (Minister of Transport):

Mr. Speaker, the Darling report has many particular aspects. I am assuming the member is talking about the rejection of what is commonly referred to as the Commonwealth preference. Last week I invited the four Atlantic provincial premiers, who are in the areas most affected by such an action, to give me their views. As soon as they are received, as well as others, we will make some decision on this matter. But it is not, as I mentioned in the House before, an easy matter to resolve. There are many different points of view concerning the matter, particularly the question of the increase in the cost of living especially for people in eastern Canada.

Mr. lack Marshall (Humber-St. George's-St. Barbe):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Manpower and Immigration. Can the minister indicate progress with regard to the announcement of CANMOP, whether he has had co-ordinating meetings with the provinces and whether they will be involved in the over-all program?

Hon. Bryce Mackasey (Minister oi Manpower and Immigration):

Yes, Mr. Speaker. Since the basic concept of the new program is maximum input by the provinces, particularly with regard to the social effects of such a program, there has been continuous dialogue at the official stage. With regard to whether there has been any progress, the short answer is yes.

Mr. Marshall:

Mr. Speaker, I have a supplementary for the Minister of Public Works. In view of the fact the CANMOP program will be going on with local initiative projects, would the minister advise whether federal works projects have been deferred even though moneys have been allocated in the estimates, why they are being deferred, and why there is no co-ordination between the minister and the Minister of Manpower and Immigration?

Hon. ]ean-Eudes Dube (Minister of Public Works): No,

Mr. Speaker. No decision has been taken at the present time either to defer or advance works programs. Each project is looked at and considered on its own merits.
