Progressive Conservative

Mr. Eldon M. Woolliams (Calgary North):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of pressing and urgent necessity. All of Canada was shocked at the murder of yet another policeman in the city of Calgary. It was a further shock when the public was informed that the two main figures involved in this tragic weekend drama, William Nichols and John Gamble, were released on bail after having been charged with attempted murder and murder respectively. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Calgary Centre (Mr. Andre):

That this House urge the Attorney General of Canada to contact all provincial attorneys general in order to discuss and set out rules and criteria regarding the granting of bail to dangerous offenders such as the said Nichols and Gamble who committed another horrible deed in Calgary.

New Democratic Party

Mr. Andy Hogan (Cape Breton-East Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. According to the research department of Amnesty International at least 6,000 persons in Uruguay, about one in every 450 of that country's 2.5 million people, is a political prisoner. During the last few years one in every 50 persons has been subjected to interrogation, arrest, imprisonment or torture. The rule of terror in Uruguay is brutal and as far reaching as

any in the world. I therefore, move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That our Department of State for External Affairs send a controlled and dignified appeal to President Bardaberry of Uruguay seeking an end to such monstrous crimes in his nation.

SC

Léonel Beaudoin

Social Credit

Mr. Leonel Beaudoin (Richmond):

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

Since, according to the basic rules of our judiciary system, a Canadian citizen cannot intervene in the affairs of a court concerning a case submitted to justice and acts illegally if he does, and since members of a government must not only abide by the same rules as every other citizen but should also make it a duty, as established authority, to set the example by taking on, as it were, the leadership of integrity, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):

That the House discuss immediately the statement made Friday by the Prime Minister to explain his refusal to accept the resignation of the Minister of Public Works, with a view to finding out whether in fact the rule of law can guarantee that justice be done in a case in which politics are involved, such as "the judges' affair", which concerns the House, and also to discuss the need to set up strict rules of professional ethics for parliamentarians in this regard.
