PC

John Douglas Reynolds

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John Reynolds (Burnaby-Richmond-Delta):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that Miss Sharon Bethune, daughter of longshoreman Roy Bethune, has been released from a Mexican jail after eight months incarceration, and in view of the fact that a Mexican judge has signed release papers showing Miss Bethune is innocent of any charges, I move:

That the Canadian government take steps to compensate Mr. Bethune for any funds he may have spent to get his daughter released from Mexico.

IMMIGRATION

Andrew Hogan

New Democratic Party

Mr. Andy Hogan (Cape Breton-East Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the inflammatory and derogatory comments made by the Minister of Manpower and Immigration concerning immigrants to Canada who, in fact, have made a very positive contribution to Canadian life, I move:

That this House deeply regrets the comments of the Minister of Manpower and Immigration and urges him to make a statement on motions retracting his divisive comments on immigrants coming to Canada.

SEARCH AND RESCUE

PC

James Aloysius McGrath

Progressive Conservative

Mr. James A. McGrath (St. John's East):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to move a motion under the terms of Standing Order 43 similar to the motion put forward earlier last week. I do so in the light of new evidence which has now come to hand as a result of the coming ashore yesterday of a life raft with six bodies of the crew of the MV Gabriella, which means that all the 13 people who died in that tragedy died as a result of exposure, not from drowning. I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Hamilton West (Mr. Alexander):

That the government order a judicial inquiry into the abandoning of the MV. Gabriella off the south coast of Newfoundland.

SOCIAL SECURITY

NDP

Stanley Howard Knowles (N.D.P. House Leader)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, my motion relates to a matter which is an urgent one to many Canadians and that is the reason I ask leave to move it under Standing Order 43. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands (Mr. Douglas):

That this House urges the government to bring in legislation that will establish pension rights for all homemaker spouses equivalent to the rights of those employed outside the home, and that the government commit itself to the taking of this action during the present session of Parliament.
