ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

THE QUEEN

PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, which has to do with the latest issue by Canada Post of a philatelic description of postage stamps commemorating the 1976 Olympic games. In this one, as in other similar pamphlets issued earlier, Queen Elizabeth The Second of Canada is not mentioned. The reference to the opening of the Olympic games is, and I quote, "The Head of State normally declares the games open". This is another example of the way in which the Queen is being by-passed, and corresponds with some recent speeches made by the Prime Minister in which he refers to her as Queen of England, a gratuitous injustice to her, and contempt of the provisions of the Constitution and of Parliament, of which she is an integral part. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Dauphin (Mr. Ritchie):

That this House views with deep concern the manner in which the Trudeau government is endeavouring to undermine the position the Queen occupies as Queen of Canada by avoiding any mention of her.

FINANCE

PC

A. Daniel McKenzie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg South Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that projected government spending is $700 million more than last year with an estimated deficit of $5 billion at a time when the government is calling for

restraint and in light of the fact that the former Minister of Finance, John Turner, was instrumental in developing during his term this fiscal mismanagement which has no precedent in the annals of handling public finance, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Don Valley (Mr. Gillies):

That this House instruct Mr. John Turner to appear before the Standing Committee on Finance, Trade and Economic Affairs to account for and explain his mismanagement of public funds.

NATIONAL DEFENCE

PC

Kenneth Earl Hurlburt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ken Hurlburt (Lethbridge):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In light of the fact that we are negotiating a deal with West Germany for the Leopard tank which involves an expenditure of some $150 million, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Hamilton-Went-worth (Mr. O'Sullivan):

That the minister investigate the feasibility of building our own tank in Canada, which could reduce unemployment as well as instill a little self-confidence and pride in Canadians, and that we name this new Canadian built tank "The Beaver".

SUGGESTED MASTER PLAN FOR PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF ELECTRICITY TO EASTERN CANADA- MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

J. Robert Howie

Progressive Conservative

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

Mr. Speaker, I rise on an urgent and pressing matter pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43. Whereas the sharing of the electric power product of generating facilities using renewable resources and lowest cost fuels is an urgent need for all Canadian consumers, and whereas the Atlantic provinces and Quebec have tremendous unused potential

Oral Questions

development sites for power and industry, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Central Nova (Mr. MacKay):

That the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources and the Minister of Regional Economic Expansion be directed to contact representatives of each of the government of Quebec and the Atlantic provinces and work with them in a spirit of co-operation to produce a master plan for the production, transmission and distribution of electric power and energy at the lowest possible cost in an eastern Canadian power pool.
