ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

THE CANADIAN ECONOMY

PC

Elmer MacIntosh MacKay (Progressive Conservative Party Caucus Chair)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Elmer M. MacKay (Central Nova):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to Standing Order 43 relating to the serious unemployment problem in Pictou county in northern Nova Scotia where over 2,000 people have recently lost their jobs, prompting a delegation representing the workers, municipal governments, and the province to come to Ottawa to impress upon the cabinet the gravity of this situation. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Dartmouth-Halifax East (Mr. Forrestall):

That this House supports the efforts of this delegation which met with the Minister of Transport and various members of parliament this morning, and expresses on their behalf thanks to the Minister of Transport and the government House leader for their assistance and attention to this urgent problem.

John Edward Broadbent

New Democratic Party

Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to present a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. It arises from the unfortunate report that the special assistant to the Minister of Supply and Services invited a reporter to take a free plane ride to western Canada on a government aircraft recently. As a result of this and the direct implication of the possibility of influence peddling-I stress the possibility and that is what conflict of interest is all about in this area-I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House instruct the Minister of Transport who is very familiar with this kind of activity, to present to the House guidelines for the use of ministerial aircraft, these to be presented not later than December 20.

FEDERAL-PROVINCIAL RELATIONS REQUEST FOR STATEMENT ON RESULTS OF FIRST MINISTERS' CONFERENCE-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

Flora Isabel MacDonald

Progressive Conservative

Miss Flora MacDonald (Kingston and the Islands):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that no opportunity was given to this House prior to the current first ministers' conference to examine the federal fiscal proposals, and since the conference is closed to members of parliament and the public, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Don Valley (Mr. Gillies):

That this House enjoins the Prime Minister to make a statement on motions about the outcome of the conference immediately following its conclusion.

Mr. Andrew Brewin (Greenwood):

Mr. Speaker, my motion somewhat resembles the motion you just heard but is couched in such gentle and persuasive tones that it may be the House will accept it.

Francis Andrew Brewin

New Democratic Party

Mr. Brewin:

I know they are hard to persuade. Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of urgent and pressing necessity. It appears that the conference of the prime ministers taking place today is dealing with matters of urgent importance to the parliament and people of Canada. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That the Prime Minister be requested-

December 13, 1976

Northern Living Allowance

That is a little amendment of the word "enjoined" in the previous motion.

-to make a statement on motions as soon as possible stating his version of what was decided or not decided at the conference and where we go from here on this important matter so that parliament and the people of Canada fnay know the facts as to the conference.
