Paul Yewchuk

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Paul Yewchuk (Athabasca):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that the organic phosphate pesticide leptiphos was banned for agricultural use in the United States more than a year ago, and in view of the fact that this chemical has been implicated in some very serious disorders of the nervous system and that the Canadian Department of Agriculture has spent six months contemplating the cancellation of the chemical but even to the present has not moved decisively on this matter, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Elgin (Mr. Wise):

That the government immediately ban the use of leptiphos in Canada.

FEDERAL-PROVINCIAL RELATIONS ALLEGEDLY IRRESPONSIBLE SUGGESTION OF MINISTER OF FINANCE CONCERNING APPROACH OF PROVINCES TO FINANCIAL RELATIONS-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

NDP

John Edward Broadbent

New Democratic Party

Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):

Mr. Speaker, I too rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. The matter concerns the statement made yesterday by the Minister of Finance (Mr. Macdonald) that the unanimous agreement reached by the provinces on a common approach in financial matters to the federal government constituted a threat in favour of separatism, which all reasonable people in the country, I am sure, will find both absurd and irresponsible. Therefore, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House condemns as irresponsible the suggestion made by the Minister of Finance that the unanimous approach achieved by the provinces on

Social Credit

Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion concerning a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

Considering that at their special meeting Monday and Tuesday the provincial and federal ministers of finance could not agree on the distribution of taxation powers allowing the provinces and Ottawa to meet their respective obligations and that the opposition between the central and provincial powers is centered mainly around the fact that the federal government is short of money to meet its commitments and that the major problem of the provinces is basically the same, a situation that has been going on for several years, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):

That the House recommend the formation of a special committee of the House to make an in-depth study of what would be the consequences, as alternatives to this conflict, of the Bank of Canada Act amendments proposed through Bill C-206 tabled on October 22, 1976 and recommending that the Bank of Canada be empowered to make long term loans to the federal and provincial government at interests rates not exceeding administrative costs.
