Mr. Alex Patterson (Fraser Valley East):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to propose a motion of urgent and pressing necessity arising from the disappearance on June 1, on a flight from Fort Nelson, B.C. to Watson Lake, Yukon Territory, of a helicopter carrying the pilot, Mr. Young of Abbotsford, British Columbia, and a passenger, Mr. Seagrise of Woodstock, Ontario.
In view of the fact that the provisions carried on this flight and the experience of the pilot in survival capability could assure survival for a sustained period of time, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Oxford (Mr. Halliday):
That the Minister of National Defence order the immediate resumption of the full-scale search that was suspended on June 11.
