ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

CANADIAN COASTGUARD

PC

James Aloysius McGrath

Progressive Conservative

Mr. James A. McGrath (St. John's East):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. My motion is prompted by the most recent tragedy off the coast of Newfoundland in which two Canadian fishermen were lost, which once again highlights the inadequacies of present search and rescue procedures. My motion, for which I ask the unanimous consent of the House, is as follows: I move, seconded by the hon. member for Humber-St. George's-St. Barbe (Mr. Marshall):

That the Minister of Transport (Mr. Lang) immediately order a special judicial inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the foundering of the fishing boat San Juan on February 23, 1976, with the loss of two lives, and the response of the Canadian Coastguard Ship Bartlett in relation thereto.

Hon. Stanley Haidasz (Parkdale):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43 I request the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion concerning an urgent and important matter. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for York South (Mrs. Appolloni):

That in view of concerns expressed in Canada that the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe signed at Helsinki may be regarded as having given legal status to the incorporation of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania into the Soviet Union, and in view of statements by the leaders of the Soviet Union that suggest that they so interpret the Final Act, it is moved that this House supports the Canadian government's position, as expressed in the House on December 2, 1975 by the Secretary of State for External Affairs (Mr. Mac-Eachen), that the Final Act in no way confirms the territorial status

quo in Europe, and that in particular the status of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania as it is at present recognized by Canada has in no way been altered thereby.

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS

NDP

John R. Rodriguez

New Democratic Party

Mr. John Rodriguez (Nickel Belt):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43 I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to deal with a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that the CNR has announced the transfer of 11 jobs in their accounting department in Capreol, Ontario, to Toronto in the next couple of months as part of a centralization program, and in view of the fact that this represents a serious blow to the town's economic health, and in view of the fact that, contrary to centralizing its various services, the corporation should be decentralizing into areas like Capreol, and in view of the fact that the CNR is supposedly the people's railway, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Cape Breton-East Richmond (Mr. Hogan):

That this House instruct the Minister of Transport (Mr. Lang) to approach the CNR with a view to having these job transfers halted.

OLYMPIC GAMES

SC

Eudore Allard

Social Credit

Mr. Eudore Allard (Rimouski):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House to discuss a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

Since the Olympic Games which will be held in Montreal in 1976 concern all Canadians, since Canada as a whole will profit by the publicity and the international prestige of these games, since the cost of the games will reach about $1.2 billion while until now the participation of the federal government totals only $200 million, leaving a balance of $1 billion which Quebecers will have to pay because of these games, and since the federal government grants interest-free loans to foreign countries, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):

That, through the Bank of Canada, the federal government grant to the City of Montreal a loan covering the deficit incurred because of the games, at a rate of interest not superior to the administration cost and repayable in 50 years.
