Mr. Doug Neil (Moose Jaw):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the critical economic situation in the Yukon resulting from the shutdown of the Cyprus-Anvil Mine at Faro, and in view of the fact that the shutdown is a result of the AIB administrator Donald Tansley rolling back the decision of AIB from 14 per cent to 8 per cent, and in view of the fact that the shutdown is having disastrous effects on the economy of the Yukon, I move, seconded by the hon. member for the Yukon (Mr. Nielsen):
That the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development take immediate steps through consultations with the Minister of Finance and representatives of the Yukon legislative assembly to resolve the problem.
