ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

CRIMINAL CODE

PC

Otto John Jelinek

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Otto Jelinek (High Park-Humber Valley):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under Standing Order 43. Because capital punishment is such an emotional issue that quite obviously the government is unable to cope with it and because of the fact that this same government does not even uphold its own laws in respect of capital punishment, and because of the hesitancy to adhere to the wishes of what is now obviously the majority of Canadians who are in fact being asked to accept the alarming growth of crime as a way of life, and on the basis that this is indeed an urgent and pressing matter which deals with life and death, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Lethbridge (Mr. Hurlburt):

That this parliament instruct the Prime Minister to initiate a national referendum with regard to capital punishment.

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. For reasons which I have stated many times in the past, and with which I am sure the hon. member is familiar, I have declined consistently to consider this as a proper subject for a motion under Standing Order 43.

PROPOSED INQUIRY INTO ALLEGED MISUSE OF NEWS

PC

Thomas Charles Cossitt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to propose a motion under Standing Order 43 arising from a number of instances, including Tuesday's manipulation and misuse by the CBC president, Mr. Picard, of publicly owned news facilities on the "World at Six" and the national television news to slander a member of this House, and last night's reprehensible prevention by CBC management of the same programs carrying the rebuttal given Picard's actions in the House yesterday, constituting management rather than editing of news, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie):

That the House requests the Canadian Radio-Television Commission to hold a public inquiry into the existence of disgraceful manipulation and misuse of publicly owned CBC news facilities by CBC management, particularly by President Laurent Picard, for personal and political purposes that are not consistent with the principle of unbiased coverage of the news and that such inquiry also specifically determine whether or not such actions are encouraged, requested, or in any way arranged by persons in the Government of Canada.

REQUEST FOR SURVEY OF RESOURCES TO PREVENT MONOPOLY FORMATION-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

SC

Joseph Adrien Henri Lambert

Social Credit

Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, I ask leave to present a motion dealing with an important and urgent matter.

As the demand for energy of all sorts will grow increasingly in Canada in the years to come, and as it is most important for Canada to know, as accurately as possible, what potential it has in all fields of energy, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):

That a special committee of the House be set up to make a survey of all energy research being done throughout Canada, this to enable the government to spare Canadians the creation of monopolies which might exploit the good faith of Canadians.

WHEAT-SUGGESTED COMMITTEE STUDY OF METHODS TO PREVENT LOSSES TO PRODUCERS AS RESULT OF LABOUR-MANAGEMENT DISPUTES-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

Donald Frank Mazankowski (Progressive Conservative Party Caucus Chair)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Don Mazankowski (Vegreville):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43 I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In the light of reliable statements released by the Palliser Wheat Growers' Association that the wheat producers of Canada have incurred losses of $261 million during the 1974-75 crop year as a result of labour disruptions and breakdowns in the grain handling and transportation system, which is the equivalent of 50 cents per bushel or $1,700 per producer, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Marquette (Mr. Stewart):

That the subject matter be referred to a special parliamentary committee to immediately consider ways and means of resolving the current labour-management relationship-to consider ways and means by which the producers may recover: and be further saved from any future losses as a result of the failure of management and/or labour to act responsibly in the over-all national interest.
