Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ray Hnatyshyn (Saskatoon-Biggar):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the acquisition of options by Eldorado Nuclear Limited of land in the Warman, Saskatchewan area near Saskatoon for the construction of a uranium refinery, and in view of the veil of secrecy imposed on this project by the NDP government of the province of Saskatchewan and the Liberal government of Canada, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Edmonton Centre (Mr. Paproski):

That this House direct the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources to immediately table all documents relating to the establishment of a uranium refinery in the province of Saskatchewan, including agreements with the province of Saskatchewan, environmental impact studies and material relating to the operation and function of the proposed refinery.

Mr. Stuart Leggatt (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that many of the shipyards in British Columbia have laid off up to 90 per cent of their work force because of lack of contracts and the industry is in its most depressed state since the great depression, and in view of the fact that Canada's 200-mile economic zone will be effective as of January 1, 1977, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House request the Minister of Supply and Services and the acting Minister of National Defence to present to this House within the next two weeks their proposals for a Canadian ship construction for defence and search and rescue in the new economic zone and that Firm contracts be let for such construction at least prior to January 1, 1977.

EXTERNAL AFFAIRS

PC

Eldon Mattison Woolliams

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Eldon M. Woolliams (Calgary North):

Mr. Speaker, this matter was brought to the attention of the House by the hon. member for Burnaby-Richmond-Delta. Pursuant to Standing Order 43, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that Miss Bethune, daughter of longshoreman Ray Bethune, has been incarcerated since February in a Mexican jail, and since her father has spent some $18,000 to obtain a hearing or a release, I move:

That the Department of External Affairs, after discussions with the Department of Justice and through the Secretary of State for External Affairs, protest in the strongest terms to the Mexican authorities that Miss Bethune be given an immediate hearing and, if innocent, be released from the deplorable jail conditions in which she is incarcerated, as a result of which she is subjected to indignities and conditions similar to those experienced by other Canadians, now and in the past, in that nation.
