Howard Earl Johnston

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Howard Johnston (Okanagan-Kootenay):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on an issue of urgent and pressing necessity. We are rapidly approaching the second anniversary of the Panarctic Air crash which dramatically illustrates the need for an independent accident investigation commission which the speech from the throne signally failed to mention. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Esquimalt-Saanich (Mr. Munro):

That this House urge the government to introduce immediately legislation setting up this commission.

Mr. Max Saltsman (Waterloo-Cambridge):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Given that the government is about to manipulate and change the composition of the consumer price index, and given the importance placed on the consumer price index as a measure of the cost of living by governments, by business, by labour and by consumers, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Yorkton-Melville (Mr. Nystrom):

That this House instruct the Standing Committee on Finance, Trade and Economic Affairs to hold hearings into the composition, applicability, and accuracy of the consumer price index with power to call witnesses and commission research and that it communicate its findings to this House before the government makes any changes to the consumer price index.

PRESENCE IN GALLERY OF FAMILY OF THE LATE RIGHT HON. LOUIS ST. LAURENT

LIB

James Alexander Jerome (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Liberal

Mr. Speaker:

Before proceeding with the oral question period I know that all hon. members will want to join with me in adding just another small tribute to those that have already taken place during the presentation of a bust to the House of Commons this morning and the unveiling of a statue in front of the Supreme Court of Canada by the Prime Minister, both events honouring a very distinguished former Prime Minister, the late Right Hon. Louis St. Laurent who is represented here by several members of his family. I should like to signal their presence in the gallery, particularly represented by his senior son, Monsieur Renault St. Laurent and Madam St. Laurent.

Mr. Speaker:

Tributes, of course, were paid to the late Right Hon. Louis St. Laurent this morning by the Secretary of State and, also upon the unveiling of the statue by the Right Hon. Prime Minister. I may say that I would like to take credit for this suggestion, but I cannot in all honesty do so. The suggestion was made to me moments ago by the right hon. member for Prince Albert who has suggested that the text of both those addresses, in order that they have a special place in the annals of Canadian history, be appended to today's Hansard. If that is the wish of the House, it will be so ordered.
