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.
