Steve Eugene Paproski (Chief Opposition Whip; Whip of the Progressive Conservative Party)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Steven E. Paproski (Edmonton Centre):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, I would like to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity arising out of the fact that Camp Petawawa lacks runway facilities for C-103 Hercules aircraft and also lacks facilities to house and school families for the Canadian Airborne Regiment which is to be transferred from Edmonton to Camp Petawawa.

I move, seconded by the hon. member for Saskatoon-Biggar (Mr. Hnatyshyn):

That the Prime Minister reverse his minister's foolhardy and senseless military decision.

FINANCE

SC

Gilbert F. Rondeau

Social Credit

Mr. Gilbert Rondeau (Shefford):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion on a matter which is extremely important and weighs heavily on the Canadian economy.

Since the PQ government was elected in Quebec, Canadian speculators on the international foreign exchange market in Toronto, who are executives of the Canadian Bankers' Association, are taking advantage of that election to lower as they please the value of the Canadian dollar for the benefit of manipulators within the Canadian Bankers' Association, since only banks can determine and control the value of the Canadian dollar on the international foreign exchange market. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Champlain (Mr. Matte):

That a committee of the House be immediately instructed to look into and investigate that matter and to give the Bank of Canada exclusive control over the value of the Canadian dollar in terms of foreign currency, since the Bank of Canada is quite unaware of the secret manipulation conducted by private banks, through their association in Toronto, as they alone determine that value every day.

Mr. Stuart Leggatt (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the terms of Standing Order 43 to present a motion of urgent and pressing necessity.

chaos in water transportation along the British Columbia coast as a result of lack of planning and inattention on the part of the government, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Nickel Belt (Mr. Rodriguez):

[DOT] (mo)

That the subject of water transportation on the B.C. coast, including all the decisions on subsidies and the awarding of contracts, be immediately referred to the Standing Committee on Transportation and Communications; and that the confidential report prepared by Acres Consultants for the Department of Transport be released to this committee and such committee be authorized to subpeona all persons they deem appropriate to their investigation.
