Stuart Malcolm Leggatt

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stuart Leggatt (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter that I think is urgent. On November 18 the Minister of Transport (Mr. Lang) had this to say in the House about the stockpiling of sand for rent at Vancouver international airport: "We are saving the sand in case we need it", thereby indicating that preloading may have commenced regarding the $500 million project for a third runway at that airport.

In view of the fact that the environment subcommittee for the Vancouver international airport, which was formed by his predecessor, has recommended a moratorium on airport expansion, damage from dredging being one of the reasons, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Greenwood (Mr. Brewin):

That the subject of the proposed shorter runway be referred to the said ecological subcommittee for study and that all dredging from Borrow Site No. 3 cease immediately.

EXTERNAL AFFAIRS

NDP

Francis Andrew Brewin

New Democratic Party

Mr. Andrew Brewin (Greenwood):

Mr. Speaker, I too, rise on a point of urgency in accordance with the provisions of Standing Order 43. The Secretary of State for External Affairs (Mr. Jamieson) is reported to have said recently that if South Africa refuses independence for Namibia, Canada would consider supporting international sanctions against that country. As the United Nations has clearly declared the independence of Namibia and indeed has passed resolutions

calling for sanctions against that country, and since this involves respect for the rule of law and the right of the majority to choose their government, I move, seconded by the hon. member for New Westminster (Mr. Leggatt):

That this House request the Secretary of State for External Affairs to make a statement on motions or otherwise disclose clearly to the House what proposals Canada has for supporting international sanctions, under what conditions they will be imposed and giving a clear undertaking to this House that Canada will take the action indicated by him.

SUGGESTED DETERMINATION OF REASON FOR HIGH LEVEL OF MERCURY IN RESIDENTS OF ARCTIC BAY-MOTION UNDER S.O.

NDP

Walter (Wally) Firth

New Democratic Party

Mr. Wally Firth (Northwest Territories):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and vital concern. Last Thursday the Department of Health and Welfare reported that in testing residents of Arctic Bay, NWT, all of those tested had a level of mercury above the normal human range. I move, seconded by the hon. member for New Westminster (Mr. Leggatt):

That the Minister of National Health and Welfare (Mr. Lalonde) take immediate steps to investigate the causes of this potentially disastrous situation.

OLD AGE SECURITY ACT

NDP

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

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, because at least one million Canadians will agree with me that this is an urgent matter, I seek to move it under Standing

December 6, 1976

Oral Questions

Order 43. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Oshawa-Whitby (Mr. Broadbent):

That this House urges the government to introduce without further delay its proposed amendments to the Old Age Security Act, relating to residence requirements and reciprocity with other countries, and to include in those amendments a substantial increase in the amount of the basic pension as well as a provision to make the pension available at age 60 to all persons not in the labour market.
