PUBLIC WORKS


FOR TERRASSE DE LA CHAUDlfiRE-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43


PC

Arthur Ronald Huntington

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ron Huntington (Capilano):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. On July 13, 1976 in Hansard at page 15286 the former minister of public works said that no agreement had been signed with the Campeau Corporation concerning Les Terrasses de la Chaudiere project in Hull, Quebec.

In view of the fact that the Campeau Corporation under date of June 28, 1976 had an information circular in the hands of certain financial houses in Canada for the purpose of raising $148,500,000 and also the fact that only eight days after the minister's statement in this House the Department of Public Works had signed extensive documents of lease with the Campeau Corporation, and because the terms of the documents indicate a financing factor of approximately $50 million more than a reasonable estimate of cost for the area leased by the government, I move, seconded by the hon. member for York-Simcoe (Mr. Stevens):

That all further progress on construction and financial arrangements cease until all matters pertaining to possible conflict of interest and the apparent excesses involved in the financial arrangements have been examined by a judicial inquiry.

Mr. Gordon Towers (Red Deer):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I rise on a matter of vital importance to members of this House as well as to Canadian beef producers arising from a statement by the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Whelan) that the United States had agreed to allow a 90 million pound beef export quota for Canada, causing embarrassment to citizens on both sides of the border when it was found that the statement was not in accordance with the facts. Therefore, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Saskatoon-Biggar (Mr. Hnatyshyn):

That the Minister of Agriculture make a statement in this House explaining why he used the 90 million pound figure and at the same time inform the House and beef producers what mechanism will be used to trigger the granting of import permits for Australian and New Zealand beef.

Robert Muir

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Muir:

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker, I apologize to you and to my leader who will be the next Prime Minister of this country. With regard to the motion under Standing Order 43 moved by the hon. member for Yorkton-Melville, I understood that there was agreement on the part of the Minister of Labour. I thought there was unanimous consent but someone tells me that some member of the Liberal party said no.
