PENITENTIARIES

PC

Arthur Ronald Huntington

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ron Huntington (Capilano):

I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity to put forward a motion under Standing Order 43 with respect to the recent tragic events in British Columbia. In view of evidence of demoralization among the security staff in our prison system and in view of a consistently high rate of recividism among inmates in spite of an increase in costs amounting to 1100 per cent over the last 15 years, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Central Nova:

That in the opinion of this House the security, the effectiveness and the cost of correctional services administered by the Solicitor General have deteriorated to a point at which a Royal Commission should be appointed to examine and report on all aspects of our correctional institutions and services.

TRANSPORT

SC

Eudore Allard

Social Credit

Mr. Eudore Allard (Rimouski):

Mr. Speaker, under Standing Order 43, I ask the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the fact that the establishment of a deep sea port at Gros-Cacouna is essential to the economic development and expansion of the Lower St. Lawrence area, that such a sea port would be extremely useful to promote international trade with Canada, and that the government has already spent millions to develop such a project, I move, seconded by the member for Shefford (Mr. Rondeau):

That the House asks the Minister of Transport (Mr. Marchand) to take the necessary steps for the establishment of a sea port at Gros-Cacouna on the basis of studies carried out by the Department of Transport and that the plan be completed as soon as possible.
