PC

John Carnell Crosbie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John C. Crosbie (St. John's West):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43 for which I ask the unanimous consent of the House. My motion is in connection with a serious situation at St. John's and Mount Pearl post offices in Newfoundland where members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers went on strike last Monday afternoon at 3.20 p.m. and are continuing their strike despite the fact that a collective agreement is in force and the law prohibits such a strike during the term of an agreement. There are now some 12,000 unemployment insurance cheques totalling $2 million caught in the mail. Old age pensions, veterans cheques and social assistance cheques are scheduled to be delivered Monday but will be delayed if this strike continues. 1 therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Parry Sound-Mus-koka (Mr. Darling):

That this House urge the Postmaster General to use every possible means to bring this illegal work stoppage to a halt immediately by way of obtaining a court injunction or otherwise and urge the postal clerks involved to return to work so that the severe hardship caused members of the general public, including those dependent upon unemployment insurance cheques, old age security, veterans cheques and other social assistance cheques through the mails, will cease.

Robert Muir

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Robert Muir (Cape Breton-The Sydneys):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity affecting instructors and students in adult vocational training programs in Nova

Scotia. In view of the recently announced cutbacks in instructors and training by the Nova Scotia Labour Minister which, because of the severe unemployment program, particularly on Cape Breton Island, will create even greater hardship, and in light of the conflicting and contradictory statements on the amounts allocated for training by provincial officials, federal manpower officials and, indeed, by the Minister of Manpower and Immigration (Mr. Cullen) here in this Chamber, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Halifax (Mr. Stanfield):

That more money be allocated for training in the province of Nova Scotia, or alternatively, the Minister of Manpower and Immigration investigate the situation and clarify the matter to determine who is passing the buck.

Eudore Allard

Social Credit

Mr. Eudore Allard (Rimouski):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, I seek the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the fact that there are no all weather air navigation facilities at the Gaspe and Magdalen Islands airports, that airplanes are the only means of travelling in and out of the Magdalen Islands during the winter months, and that it is high time the Department of Transport's report following the studies initiated in 1968 bring about concrete results, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Champlain (Mr. Matte):

That the House urge the Department of Transport to act with all expediency and provide for fiscal year 1977-78 the necessary credits for carrying out long overdue improvements at the Gaspe and Magdalen Islands, thereby providing the public with more adequate and safer air services.

REQUEST FOR AGREEMENT WITH PROVINCES ON POLLUTION STANDARDS-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

?

Charles Edward Rea

Mr. Ren6 Matte (Champlain):

Mr. Speaker, before I put my motion, it seems to me I did not hear anyone say "No" following the motion presented by my colleague from Rimouski.

Pursuant to Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the importance of sound action against pollution and also the necessity of adequately protecting our environment, and since numerous companies do not look overly preoccupied by these problems, I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Rimouski (Mr. Allard):

That the government get together with the provinces in establishing minimum standards to protect the environment and fight pollution.
