Mr. Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg South Centre):
Mr. Speaker, I rise pursuant to Standing Order 43 to propose a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In light of the inability of the Canadian Post Office to solve its constant labour problems, decrease its huge annual deficit, or to even provide satisfactory service to the Canadian people, and in light of the fact that private parcel delivery services in both Canada and the United States show healthy profits while guaranteeing their service, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Portage (Mr. Masniuk):
That this House set up an all-party committee to study the feasibility of selling the entire post office equipment and operation to private business.
Subtopic: POST OFFICE
