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.
