PC

Sinclair McKnight Stevens

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Sinclair Stevens (York-Simcoe):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Whereas figures released today by the Department of Finance indicate that Canada's foreign reserves have fallen by $573 million since the end of last year, and whereas those same figures indicate that our U.S. dollar reserves have declined by $565 million while the Canadian dollar has fallen to a 95-cent range, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Dauphin (Mr. Ritchie):

That this House ask the government to make a reference to the Standing Committee on Finance, Trade and Economic Affairs so that a full review of Canada's activities with respect to its international reserves and the falling dollar may be made.

Reginald Cyril Symes

New Democratic Party

Mr. Cyril Symes (Sault Ste. Marie):

Mr. Speaker, 1 seek leave to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the new discovery by the Atomic Energy Control Board that over 260 homes in Elliot Lake are contaminated by radon gas, of which 14 need corrective action to prevent a health hazard to their inhabitants, and in view of the delays by AECB in commencing clean-up operations because of lack of funds, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Cape Breton-East Richmond (Mr. Hogan):

That the cabinet authorize the expenditure of sufficient funds to clean up the radiation hazard now faced by hundreds of Elliot Lake residents.

FEDERAL-PROVINCIAL RELATIONS REQUEST THAT GOVERNMENT FURTHER NATIONAL UNITY-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

SC

Armand Caouette

Social Credit

Mr. Armand Caouette (Villeneuve):

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

Considering that the recent statements by the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau)-who said that the separation of Quebec would have disastrous effects for the province-are not likely to promote a logical discussion on the advantage Quebec can draw from its presence in Confederation, appealing as they do to feelings like fear and panic, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):

That the House urge the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau) to stop trying to scare Canadians and instead administer the country in such a way that the people of Quebec have the impression that it is really worth being part of Canada.

INDUSTRY

SC

Gilbert F. Rondeau

Social Credit

Mr. Gilbert Rondeau (Shefford):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the terms of Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House to discuss a very important economic matter.

March 2, 1977

Oral Questions

The Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce (Mr. Chretien) received lately a telegram from the Canadian Association of Footwear Manufacturers in which they say, among other things, that 55 per cent of the Canadian footwear market was being supplied through imports, thus putting on unemployment insurance more than 25,000 workers from one of the oldest Canadian industries.

I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):

That the Committee on Finance, Trade and Economic Affairs examine this situation as soon as possible in order to amend the Textile and Clothing Board Act so that the footwear industry can be also covered by the board to have quotas imposed upon footwear imports.
