FISHERIES

PC

James Aloysius McGrath

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Janies A. McGrath (St. John's East):

Mr. Speaker, I am seeking the unanimous consent of the House under Standing Order 43. Yesterday in the United States House of Representatives a resolution was passed by a voice vote which, in the words of Dr. Arthur May, the Director General of Resource Services for Fisheries Environment Canada, had this to say: "The resolution was incredible and it was based on erroneous information supplied by anti-seal hunt protestors. I regret very much that the U.S. House did not see fit to advise itself on this issue. 1 would, therefore, move, with the unanimous consent of the House, seconded by the hon. member for Bonaventure-lles-de-la-Madeleine (Mr. Bechard):

That this House supports the right of Canadians to hunt seals off Canada's east coast and further supports the Minister of Fisheries and the Environment for the steps he has taken to ensure that the hunt is strictly supervised and conducted in a humane manner with quotas based on the best scientific data available to ensure proper management and conservation of the herd.

MANPOWER

John Edward Broadbent

New Democratic Party

Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):

Mr. Speaker, 1 have been informed that the Cyprus Anvil Mining Corporation in Faro, Yukon has been given approval by Canada Manpower to recruit millwrights in the United States. It has been given this approval in spite of the fact that the availability of such positions has not been advertised or posted in any form in Canada Manpower Centres in such obvious places as Sydney,

Nova Scotia; Sudbury, Ontario; Hamilton, Ontario; and Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

Given the fact that more than a million Canadians are unemployed, and the related fact that these are jobs that should be available first to Canadians, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That the House demands that the Minister of Manpower and Immigration take action immediately to stop the Cyprus Anvil Mining Corporation in Faro, Yukon from recruiting millwrights in the United States until the availability of positions for people with this skill is posted in manpower centres across Canada.

CANADA WORKS PROGRAM-CONDITIONS OF AGREEMENT WITH PROVINCES-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

SC

Joseph Adrien Henri Lambert

Social Credit

Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion dealing with an important question of pressing necessity.

In view of the fact that the provincial governments have a right of veto on projects submitted to the federal government under the Canada Works program and the Young Canada Works program without any financial contribution from the provinces to those programs, and considering that some vetoed projects cannot be carried out, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Lotbiniere (Mr. Fortin):

That the House ask the Minister of Manpower and Immigration (Mr. Cullen) to reveal the conditions under which those agreements about those programs have been concluded between the federal and provincial governments.

POST OFFICE

PC

Walter Gilbert Dinsdale

Progressive Conservative

Hon. W. G. Dinsdale (Brandon-Souris):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In recent days, members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers have been engaging in work stoppages in various parts of the country, including St. John's, Newfoundland, yesterday, protesting various violations of the current contract. In view of the detrimental effects these stoppages are having on an already seriously depressed economy, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Parry Sound-Muskoka (Mr. Darling):

That the Postmaster General take the initiative in calling a meeting of union officials, Post Office officials, representatives of the Treasury Board and the Department of Labour to settle the irritants in labour-management relations in the Post Office which are at the root of the continuing disruption of Canada's postal service.
