Mr. T. C. Douglas (Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands):
Mr. Speaker, in view of the mounting energy crisis in the United States, with its wide-ranging implications for Canadians in terms of fuel prices and fuel supplies, and having in mind the negotiations being conducted at present regarding commitments of Canadian oil to the United States market, it is imperative to assure the people of Canada of the security of Canadian supplies of oil and natural gas. I therefore ask for unanimous consent undei Standing Order 43 to move the following motion:
That the matter of the security of Canadian oil and gas supplies be referred to a special committee of this House for investigation and report, and that the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources and the Chairman of the National Energy Board be required to appear and provide the committee with all relevant information.
Subtopic: SECURITY OF CANADIAN OIL AND GAS SUPPLIES- REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION
