ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

THE CANADIAN ECONOMY

SC

Joseph Adrien Henri Lambert

Social Credit

Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):

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.

Since the anti-inflation measures advocated by the government have contributed to increase the number of unemployed in Quebec and since conditions are worsening, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):

That this House urge the government to review immediately its anti-inflation policy and launch an extensive public works program in co-operation with provinces and municipalities to control the rise of unemployment in Canada and in Quebec.

SUGGESTED STUDY OF THE POSSIBLE USE OF WIND AS SOURCE OF ENERGY-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

SC

Eudore Allard

Social Credit

Mr. Eudore Allard (Rimouski):

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

Since the search for traditional oil resources has declined more rapidly than the National Energy Board had anticipated; since in 1976, wind power appears again as a replacement solution, especially for a country such as ours where the winter season limits solar energy potentialities; considering also that the wind power potential of wind, this phenomenon caused by changes in density, pressure

and temperature of the atmosphere, is colossal; I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bellechasse (Mr. Lambert):

That this House request the government to effect as soon as possible a complete inventory of the wind resources in Canada and establish the true potential of wind power since the age of cheap petroleum is ended and that of petroleum is nearing its end.

ORAL QUESTION PERIOD

THE CANADIAN ECONOMY

PC

John Allen Fraser

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John A. Fraser (Vancouver South):

Mr. Speaker, my question is to the Minister of Labour. During this morning's meeting with the cabinet, Mr. Morris made an extremely strong protest that the so-called consensus talks which took place over many months were bilateral only and that labour never had a chance to enter into discussions with other sectors of the economy and government together. In view of Mr. Morris' statement this morning that you will never get agreement until all the players are in the ball park, can the minister advise whether throughout the series of meetings between government and labour up to the announcement of controls the Canadian Labour Congress requested, directly or indirectly, multilateral discussions on steps to control inflation? If so, why were such multilateral meetings not arranged by the government?

John Carr Munro (Minister of Labour)

Hon. John C. Munro (Minister of Labour):

Mr. Speaker, I do not recall the CLC, at any time during the consensus discussions, requesting multilateral discussions. I might say that aside from the discussions to do with inflation, the Canadian Labour Relations Council, by its very nature, has all the players in the ball park; the employers, the unions and government have been meeting on an ongoing basis to devise ways of improving the present collective bargaining system.

Oral Questions

Mr. F raser: A supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. I understand that the Canadian Labour Relations Council was not used with respect to the anti-inflation program. In view of the Prime Minister's remarks this morning to the effect that he desires the co-operation of labour in preparing for the situation at the completion of the control program, and in view of the Minister of Labour's hope that labour will co-operate by continuing membership in certain boards, such as the manpower consultative committee, the UIC advisory council, the Economic Council of Canada and the Canada Labour Relations Council, can the minister tell this House whether the government, in order to secure what we all realize to be the necessary co-operation of labour, is now prepared to discuss with the CLC some process for multilateral discussions outside of the Canadian Labour Relations Council to ensure better understanding and co-operation among all sectors of the economy, especially with regard to the culmination or completion of the anti-inflation control program?

Mr. Munro (Hamilton East):

Mr. Speaker, I believe that the Prime Minister indicated this morning at the meeting with the CLC that that suggestion on Mr. Morris' part would be well worth exploring.

LABOUR CONDITIONS

John Allen Fraser

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John A. Fraser (Vancouver South):

Mr. Speaker, a final supplementary question for the Minister of Labour. The Prime Minister said this morning that the government would want to discuss with the CLC what kind of economy and society we will need for the future. Does this indicate that the government plans significant changes in the process of free collective bargaining after the control period is ended and, if so, in order to have meaningful discussions when will the government put precise proposals to labour and to parliament for discussion? I am not referring to the same discussions that have taken place in the Canada Labour Relations Committee but to any new ideas with respect to the role of free collective bargaining in this new society that the right hon. Prime Minister spoke of this morning.
