Mr. Donald W. Munro (Esquimalt-Saanich):

Mr. Speaker, a little delayed but nevertheless under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity relating to the signs of spring, which unfortunately are not all that evident in the capital today but which do manifest themselves in the fresh daffodils from my riding of Esquimalt-Saanich, and which are available in the lobbies to all hon. members.

In view of the growing unemployment across the country and particularly in my riding, in view also of the unfair competition under which Canadian agriculturalists and hor-ticulturalists in the west suffer from cheap products from abroad in the form of vegetables, cut flowers, shrubs and fruits, some of which are almost certainly dumped on to the Canada market from overseas, I seek the unanimous consent of this House for the following motion, seconded by the hon. member for Okanagan Boundary (Mr. Whittaker):

That the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Whelan) in consultation with his colleague the Minister of Finance (Mr. Macdonald) undertake a review of the regulations relating to the seasonal imposition of duties on vegetables, cut flowers, shrubs and fruits from outside our borders, in particular recognition of the early maturing stages of these natural products in British Columbia, so that agriculturalists in the garden riding of Esquimalt-Saanich shall be able to continue their commercial operations, provide employment, and provide their customers in the east and in the west with garden fresh fruit, vegetables and flowers for many years to come.

NDP

John Edward Broadbent

New Democratic Party

Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):

Mr. Speaker, 1 too rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the latest forecast of the Conference Board of Canada indicating that the economy is showing "a generally poor performance" and that the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate will rise to 8.3 per cent by the fourth quarter of this year, and in view of the statements made by the governor of the Bank of Canada in his report tabled yesterday in the House suggesting that 1976 was a good year despite the fact that one million Canadians were unemployed, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House urges the Minister of Finance (Mr. Macdonald) to reject the totally regressive and thoroughly erroneous policy suggestions by the governor of the Bank of Canada on what is required for the Canadian economy at this time.

CRIMINAL CODE

PC

Eldon Mattison Woolliams

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Eldon M. Woolliams (Calgary North):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity to move a motion under Standing Order 43. In light of the fact that hostage-taking in Canada is occurring with such frequency as to be commonplace, and as such criminal activities are connected with violent crime, and further, as such crimes are a total curtailment of the rights and freedom of law-abiding citizens, I therefore move:

That the government bring forth an amendment to the Criminal Code of Canada making hostage-taking a crime calling for a minimum sentence of imprisonment for five years.

COMMENDATION OF TORONTO POLICE ON SUCCESSFULLY DEALING WITH HOSTAGE-TAKING INCIDENT-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

Henry Perrin Beatty

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Perrin Beatty (Wellington-Grey-Dufferin-Waterloo):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the terms of Standing Order 43 to seek the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion about an important public matter. As members of the House will be aware, last night in Toronto at about 11.30 p.m. a hostage-taking incident involving 13 hostages came to an end peacefully. The successful conclusion of this incident, which ended without any injury, gave yet another example of the courageous and dedicated service given all Canadians by the police forces of this country.

Mr. Beatty:

I would ask the unanimous consent of the House to move, seconded by the hon. member for Provencher (Mr. Epp):

That this House commends the members of the metropolitan Toronto police force for their courage and efficiency in bringing the hostage-taking incident of March 21, 1977 to a peaceful conclusion and it recognizes with appreciation the daily contribution of the police forces from across Canada whose bravery and dedication help to preserve the lives and safety of all Canadians.
