ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

TRANSPORT

PC

Elmer MacIntosh MacKay (Progressive Conservative Party Caucus Chair)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Elmer M. MacKay (Central Nova):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, involving transportation. On April 6 of this year, the Minister of Transport appeared before the relevant standing committee and promised a new Air Canada Act, a new transportation act, a new ports policy and a re-examination of the St. Lawrence seaway. A year before that, the former minister of transport announced there would be a regional third level air policy and on March 14, 1972 his predecessor promised sweeping transportation changes involving the CNR, Air Canada and the Railway Act amendments. Therefore, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie):

That because of the unprecedented delay in implementing these various obvious and important changes, the present Minister of Transport make a statement on motions at the first opportunity explaining to the House the reasons for this procrastination and giving the precise date when Air Canada officials who have not appeared before the relevant committee of this House during the past three years-at that time the 1972 annual report of Air Canada was discussed-will appear.

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ray Hnatyshyn (Saskatoon-Biggar):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the remarks of the Minister of Finance (Mr. Macdonald) on CBC television last week in relation to Canada's economic future in which he referred to the economist John Kenneth Galbraith as a "gadfly" whose economic propositions are "too shallow", I move, seconded by the hon. member for Edmonton Centre (Mr. Paproski):

That this House direct the Secretary of State for External Affairs to extend apologies to Dr. Galbraith for the minister's extravagant cheap shots.
