Sinclair McKnight Stevens
Mr. Sinclair Stevens (York-Simcoe):
Mr. Speaker, 1 ask leave to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. With federal spending up by 127 per cent in the past six years which has led to a 100 per cent growth in our money supply in the same period and to 55 per cent inflation while real growth was only 31.6 per cent, and with tourist activity especially in the nation's capital needing a stimulant, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Vancouver Quadra (Mr. Clarke):
That the offices of the Department of Finance and the Treasury Board in Ottawa be designated an international tourist site and be renamed Home of Canadian Inflation and that the new Bank of Canada building on Wellington Street be designated Inflation Factory No. 1 Printing Department, in the earnest hope that these two sites will become tourist attractions and perhaps shrines to the inflationary effect of reckless money creation, with morning tours to be conducted by the Prime Minister as a penance for his leading role in causing today's inflation.
Sub-subtopic: SUGGESTED CHANGES IN NAMES OF HEADQUARTERS OFFICES AND BANK OF CANADA BUILDING-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
