NORTHERN CANADA POWER COMMISSION

NDP

Walter (Wally) Firth

New Democratic Party

Mr. Wally Firth (Northwest Territories):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to Standing Order 43.

In view of the fact that a number of employees of the Northern Canada Power Commission have gone out on strike following the failure of the commission and the Public Service Alliance of Canada to come to an agreement on a new wage settlement, and in view of the fact that this situation presents a matter of some danger to public health and safety, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House instruct the Minister of Labour to immediately appoint a mediator in this situation and to dispatch him to the scene so that an agreement can be arrived at as soon as possible which will

satisfy all parties concerned and restore full power services to the northern communities affected.
