Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds):
Mr. Speaker, I rise pursuant to Standing Order 43 to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity superseding the one I read in the House yesterday on the matter of an alleged statement by Mr. Keith Spicer referring to English-speaking Quebeckers as "Westmount Rhodesians". I move, seconded by the hon. member for Cumberland-Colchester North (Mr. Coates):
That the matter of the address made last Saturday in Washington, D.C., by Mr. Keith Spicer, Commissioner of Official Languages, be referred immediately to the Standing Committee on Privileges and Elections for a full investigation and examination and in order to permit Mr. Spicer to answer any charges that may be made, and that the said committee report its findings along with any recommendations it may have for further action to this House as quickly as possible.
