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. It concerns the current dispute in the Toronto post office which, if not resolved immediately, could precipitate a work stoppage which would have a devastating effect on Canada's economy, which is already crippled by government mismanagement. 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Parry Sound-Muskoka (Mr. Darling):
That this House urges the government to proceed with urgently needed reforms in collective bargaining procedures in the public service which were proposed by the retiring chairman of the Public Service Staff Relations Board, Jacob Finkelman, over two years ago, and urges the Postmaster General to proceed with the long delayed reforms in the Post Office recommended by the Official Opposition which would introduce co-operation and co-determination by management, labour and postal users in post office administration, in place of the continuing confrontation which threatens to destroy Canada's once efficient postal service.
