ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS

PC

A. Daniel McKenzie

Progressive Conservative

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.

Leslie Gordon Benjamin

New Democratic Party

Mr. Les Benjamin (Regina-Lake Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I, too, rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a problem that you and I and many farmers in western Canada have. In view of the fact that the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways have decided not to run trains on certain branch lines in western Canada for weeks or months this winter and that this arrangement is agreed to by the Minister of Transport who also happens to be in charge of the Canadian Wheat Board, would you believe, and since farmers are being told they must deliver

carload lots of malting barley to another rail line, resulting in 30 to 40 miles of extra hauling, and hundreds of Canadian Wheat Board shipping orders being unfilled, if I may have uanimous consent from both sides of the House I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie):

That this House calls upon the Minister of Transport, in charge of the Canadian Wheat Board, to require the railways to operate trains throughout the winter until all outstanding wheat board shipping orders on any given subdivisions have been filled.

Léonel Beaudoin

Social Credit

Mr. Leonel Beaudoin (Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion dealing with an important matter of pressing necessity.

In view of the alarming content of the federal government's new dairy policy which seeks to reduce production of industrial milk by at least 10 per cent while increasing the import of dairy products, primarily cheese, and since this will inevitably result in a substantial reduction of the producers' revenues and automatically raise consumer prices, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Belle-chasse (Mr. Lambert):

That this House consider immediately this new dairy policy which affects very unfavourably all Canadian producers and consumers in an economy which is already stifling them, and that it require the government to change immediately its agricultural policy and take such measures as controls over imports which protect Canadians rather than weaken them in several ways.

PRIME MINISTER'S OFFICE

PC

Thomas Charles Cossitt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion which is self-explanatory, seconded by the hon. member for Dauphin (Mr. Ritchie):

In view of the fact that the Prime Minister will be addressing the nation on television and radio this evening for purposes of outlining to the Canadian people the nature of the cuts in government spending in keeping with the government's declared policy of restraint, the House requests the Prime Minister to include in his remarks the setting of a personal example to the Canadian people by declaring a new year's resolution to curtail and cut the staff size and the expenses of the Prime Minister's and Privy Council offices to a reasonable level, to further demonstrate personal restraint by announcing reductions in the heavy expenditure from public funds at his official residence of 24 Sussex Drive and, finally, a statement that personal holidays in 1976 would be paid for by himself rather than continue poaching from the taxpayer's pocket.
