Mr. Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg South Centre):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43. My motion relates to the CNR locating a piggyback terminal in southwest Winnipeg adjacent to a residential area and as the Department of the Environment study completed earlier this year is now obsolete due to the Minister of Urban Affairs granting a loan to the Manitoba government to build housing west of the terminal and in light of the fact the city of Winnipeg has sent a telegram to the federal government protesting the terminal being located on Wilkes Boulevard, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Dauphin (Mr. Ritchie):
That this House instruct the President of the Privy Council to rescind the Order in Council granting CNR the funds to build and that the Ministry of Transport direct CNR to halt all proceedings and calling for tenders until the Department of the Environment completes a new environmental study and that alternate sites be explored.
