Mr. Howard Johnston (Okanagan-Kootenay):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to raise a matter of urgent and pressing necessity arising out of an attempt by the CBC to conjure up the spirit of the departed Right Honourable William Lyon Mackenzie King, not knowing whether that exercise was attempted at the request of the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau), or whether it was an attempt by that Crown corporation to bring itself once again into the good graces of the Liberal party. In either event I move, seconded by the hon. member for Provencher (Mr. Epp):
That this House urge the CBC to cease and desist from further such attempts, believing that this country is in sufficient danger from the ghastly mismanagement of the presentfadministration without compounding the problem by obtaining the ghostly advice of the Prime Minister's unlamented predecessor.
