OLYMPIC GAMES

PC

Otto John Jelinek

Progressive Conservative

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

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43 I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of false and misleading advertising regarding the Olympic lottery program in that unsold tickets have in fact been picked as winners, thus reducing the chances of those individuals who saw fit to support the Olympic program by purchasing their tickets under false impressions, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Edmonton Centre (Mr. Paproski):

That the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs be instructed to take steps to have the Olympic lottery program altered in accordance with its advertising campaign.

INCOME TAX

Max Saltsman

New Democratic Party

Mr. Max Saltsman (Waterloo-Cambridge):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of statements by officials of National Revenue and by the former minister, Mr. Basford, to the effect that under existing tax laws multinational corporations operating in Canada are able to divert funds to subsidiaries outside of Canada, thus escaping paying hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes, and in view of the announcement by Revenue Canada that it has shelved plans to close these loopholes, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Timiskaming (Mr. Peters):

That this House condemn the government for its shortsighted approach to government finance as demonstrated by its refusal to close tax loopholes which cost the Crown hundreds of millions of dollars in foregone revenue and, further, that this House instruct the government

to undertake immediately whatever studies and monitoring programs are necessary to end this circumvention of the law.

REGIONAL ECONOMIC EXPANSION

PC

J. Robert Howie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. Robert Howie (York-Sunbury):

Mr. Speaker, has the Minister of Regional Economic Expansion devised any new initiatives, such as greater use of loan guarantees, to get more mileage out of industrial incentive grants now that his budget for industrial incentives is frozen at less than the Department of Agriculture spends on research?

Marcel Lessard (Minister of Regional Economic Expansion)

Hon. Marcel Lessard (Minister of Regional Economic Expansion):

Mr. Speaker, it is obvious that the aid formula reflected in loan guarantees or industrial incentive grants is one of the rather interesting formulas the department is applying, however, not as regularly and frequently as it should perhaps do. Surely the hon. member's suggestion to consider this proposition as a way to increase our incentives and our aid could be examined and probably applied more generously.
