Mr. Walter Baker (Grenville-Carleton):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity affecting public servants who reside in the province of Ontario but who work in Hull, Quebec, who, without consultation or reasons are required to observe St-Jean Baptiste Day and who have been denied the option they formerly had with respect to that day. 1 therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie):
That the government rescind this new directive, which requires public servants who reside in Ontario to observe Saint-Jean Baptiste Day and reinstate the optional policy which has worked so well in former years.
