ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION

PC

Howard Earl Johnston

Progressive Conservative

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.

CRIMINAL CODE

NDP

Stuart Malcolm Leggatt

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stuart Leggatt (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to Standing Order 43. In view of the recent tabling of the Badgley Commission report criticizing the operation of the abortion law in Canada and the lack of family planning facilities, in view of the statistics in that report that necessary abortion is- unavailable to a wide cross-section of women, particularly those of low income, less educated and residing in rural areas, and in view of Badgley's further report that one

out of five Canadian women still find it necessary to leave this country to obtain a necessary therapeutic abortion, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That:

(1) this government forthwith bring in legislation following the recommendations of the Royal Commission on the Status of Women that the Criminal Code be amended to permit abortion in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy or less to be performed by any qualified physician in consultation with his patient and,

(2) that the freeze in family planning spcitding be ended and substantial additional funds be provided in family planning area.

ESTABLISHMENT OF CENTRE TO DEAL WITH ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH HAZARDS-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

PC

John Robert Holmes

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. R. Holmes (Lambton-Kent):

Mr. Speaker, I, too, rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the growing problem of mercury pollution, which is national in scope, and in view of the growing number of individuals with confirmed elevated blood levels of mercury and the health hazard thereby created, and in view of the absence of long term planning on the part of the government, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Perth-Wilmot (Mr. Jarvis):

That the recommendation of Dr. T. W. Clarkson, Professor and Director of the Medical School of the University of Rochester as outlined in his interim report mentioned in this House on May 7, 1976 entitled "Exposure to methyl mercury in Grassy Narrows and While Dog Reserves" calling for the establishment of a national centre in environmental health to deal with environmental health hazards from methyl mercury and other pollutants now be accepted.
