William Herbert Jarvis

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Bill Jarvis (Perth-Wilmot):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, namely, marine traffic in oil and other hazardous cargo along the west coast of Canada. In view of the fact that Dr. Andrew Thompson indicated yesterday that he is anxious to continue his investigation under the Public Inquiries Act into the marine and environmental risks of west coast tanker traffic, and in view of the fact that the abandonment of the Kitimat proposal may result in substantially higher volumes of tanker traffic in the Georgia Strait and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Surrey-White Rock (Mr. Friesen):

That the Thompson Committee, under the Public Inquiries Act, be instructed to continue its investigations and, if necessary, that the inquiry's terms of reference be amended to permit it to shift its emphasis from the Kitimat area to the Strait of Georgia and the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Armand Caouette

Social Credit

Mr. Armand Caouette (Villeneuve):

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 matter of pressing necessity.

In view of the fact that the Social Credit Party of Canada moved an opposition motion on Wednesday last, an allotted day, about an extremely important matter and that the media,

especially the CBC, did not mention it; considering that yesterday the members of the Social Credit Party of Canada moved the adjournment of the House to protest strongly against such discrimination by the CBC, which did not even have the decency to mention the event on the news yesterday, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bellechasse (Mr. Lambert):

That this House direct the Secretary of State to assume his responsibilities and to see to it that this Crown corporation refrain from laughing at the elected representatives of the people by suppressing or failing to draw to the attention of the public the activities of the House, especially the days devoted to a particular motion.

CONFEDERATION

PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a question of urgent and pressing necessity in connection with the tinkering by this government with the things of our heritage by administrative action, as it has endeavoured in the last few years to change the statutory name of the national holiday on July 1 from Dominion Day to Canada Day, and the present anticipated change in the capital city of Canada, which would require an amendment of the British North America Act, which provides that Ottawa shall be the capital. Such actions constitute an affront to parliament and are a denial of the basic principles of the rule of law under the constitution. I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Grenville-Carleton (Mr. Baker):

That a committee of both Houses be set up to look into and report on the step-by-step erosive action that is being taken, not by parliament but by the government of Canada, in the whittling away by surreptitious means the traditional things of the heritage of our country and to put a stop to it.

BILINGUALISM

Walter David Baker (Official Opposition House Leader; Progressive Conservative Party House Leader)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Walter Baker (Grenville-Carleton):

Mr. Speaker, my question is to the Prime Minister and it arises from the profound concern that the Inuit of northern Quebec have about their right to use freely either official language-a right which is part and parcel of the James Bay Agreement which was passed only last month by this House. Despite extensive negotiation with the Quebec culture minister, Camille Laurin, the Inuit have failed to obtain the written guarantees of exemption from the provisions of Bill One, which I would respectfully suggest they have a right to expect. My question to the Prime Minister is this. Has he or any of his ministers contacted the Quebec ministers and spoken to them directly and frankly about this parliament's determination to ensure that the language rights of native people are preserved?
