ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

AGRICULTURE

PC

Jack Burnett Murta

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Jack Murta (Lisgar):

Mr. Speaker, I request the unanimous consent of the House to propose a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, that matter being the apparent decision by the Minister of Agriculture to restrict in the next few weeks the importation of agricultural herbicides and pesticides from the United States. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Medicine Hat (Mr. Hargrave):

That the restriction be on a selective basis, not include the more commonly used products, and that the chemical companies involved appear before the Standing Committee on Agriculture to explain their position on this most important matter.

Charles-Arthur Gauthier

Social Credit

Mr. C. A. Gauthier (Roberval):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of S.O. 43, I ask the unanimous consent of the House to introduce a motion of urgent necessity concerning fire insurance on buildings.

Considering that three years ago, insurance companies agreed to create a monopoly to establish the assessment basis and premium rates; that since that time, the rates as well as the assessment increased threefold, at least in Quebec; that the assessment is based on the replacement value; and finally that for all those reasons, 70 per cent of small property owners and businessmen cannot afford insurance, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bellechasse (Mr. Lambert):

That the government take action, through its anti-monopoly legislation, or by setting up an insurance board, or a State insurance, in order to help small property owners who are left defenceless in front of this monopoly.

CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION


Mr. Ren£ Matte (Champlain): Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, I seek the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Considering the importance and seriousness of the accusations voiced by a member of the Senate as to the allegedly partisan intervention of Radio-Canada employees, accusations which I feel are unfounded and filled with bitterness, passion, bias and irresponsibility; considering the chain reaction they are likely to start among those who resent the decision Quebecers came to on November 15, and also the unfounded speculations that may be levelled at employees who are doing an objective job, and because Radio-Canada's mandate is to reflect both the Canadian and Quebec realities, 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Bellechasse (Mr. Lambert): That a special House committee be set up to investigate the allegations of partisan action on the part of Radio-Canada employees.

REQUEST FOR CONFERENCE TO ACHIEVE UNIFORMITY OF GASOLINE PRICES IN QUEBEC-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

SC

Joseph Adrien Henri Lambert

Social Credit

Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House to present a very particular motion of general interest.

Since gasoline consumers in Quebec are upset by the fact that the price of this product differs from one region to another, a difference which may range from eight to ten cents a gallon, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):

That the House urge the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources to call a conference with the Minister of Natural Resources in Quebec to try to achieve uniformity of gasoline prices throughout Quebec and thus do justice to all consumers in that province.
