Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to propose a motion of a most serious nature arising from a widely circulated advertisement stating that there will be a breathtaking display of aerial wizardry at a political picnic on Saturday with the Prime Minister in attendance. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Portage (Mr. Masniuk):
That the House requests the Prime Minister to state whether or not the advertised "breathtaking display of aerial wizardry" to occur at a political picnic on the farm of Ontario Liberal leader Robert Nixon on Saturday will consist of the Prime Minister's descent from the sky with three government-owned helicopters at an estimated expense to the taxpayers of $20,000 and, if so, the House requests the Prime Minister in the interests of the proper expenditure of public funds to cancel his tax paid arrival from the heavens in favour of a more proper and worldly procedure.
