EXTERNAL AFFAIRS

PC

David Samuel Horne MacDonald

Progressive Conservative

Mr. David MacDonald (Egmont):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. With respect to assertions at the United Nations this week that seven Canadian companies are collaborating with South Africa to exploit the resources of former Southwest Africa, and in view of Canada's continued rejection of South Africa's illegal occupation of Namibia, as well as our opposition to the practice of apartheid, and with regard to a recent initiative of 11 major American corporations with operations in South Africa to apply a set of guidelines ending desegregation in eating, toilet and working facilities and establishing equal pay for equal work in South Africa, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Fundy-Royal (Mr. Fairweather):

(1) That Canada declare its strong opposition to the support of Canadian business enterprises for South African involvement in Namibia,

(2) That an inquiry be made to ensure that no tax advantages are provided to Canadian companies operating in Namibia,

(3) That Canadian firms operating in South Africa be encouraged to pursue initiatives similar to their American counterparts in establishing clear guidelines and working conditions with the South African government which will establish equality in treatment for workers regardless of race.

HARBOURS

PC

J. Michael Forrestall

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. M. Forrestall (Dartmouth-Halifax East):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the serious suggestion emanating from Montreal that the surplus funds account of the port of Montreal be used to write off debts incurred by the port in putting into effect an early retirement program for longshoremen some four or five years ago, and because such action would amount to the use of public funds for the purpose of subsidizing labour costs in that port, thereby creating an unfair advantage for one Canadian port over another, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Halifax-East Hants (Mr. McCleave):

That the government direct the Minister of Transport to instruct the National Harbours Board and any other appropriate authority, including the port of
