CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS

PC

A. Daniel McKenzie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg South Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on an issue of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In light of the statements made by the Minister of Transport last Friday in Winnipeg promising to review the proposed location of the new Canadian National Railways piggyback terminal because of the economic disadvantages to the CNR and the harm to the surrounding residential community, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Marquette (Mr. Stewart):

That this House direct the Ministry of Transport to request that the CNR halt further construction of the new terminal until an independent inquiry can be established to review the whole matter with a view to selecting an alternative site.

Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, I seek the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

Due to poor maintenance, many wharves built by the federal government along the St. Lawrence River have fallen into disrepair. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):

That this House recommend to the federal government that a survey of all wharves be conducted to determine precisely which ones should be renovated without delay to be used when we have our merchant marine.

Thomas Charles Cossitt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity to persons living in my constituency and in the general area of Leeds and Grenville counties, arising out of a recent announcement by the CBC that it will use the last available FM radio channel in the area for the almost immediate construction in Brockville, Ontario, of a 3,000 watt FM French language transmitter with a maximum radius of under 30 miles. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie):

That in view of the fact that the area to be served is well over 98 per cent non-French speaking and that such CBC action will prevent future establishment of any private FM station in the Brockville district, the House requests the government to take immediate steps to cancel such plans in the interests of common sense and proper expenditure of taxpayers' money and, finally, that the government adopt a clear policy of placing any new CBC French or English radio or television stations only in areas where a reasonable percentage of either language in the minority actually exists.
