CONGRATULATORY MESSAGES

PC

Lincoln MacCauley Alexander

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Lincoln M. Alexander (Hamilton West):

Mr. Speaker,

I have a motion under Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. If hon. friends would listen to the motion, I am sure they would agree with the sentiments expressed in it. Given the fact that 20 years ago today the Hon. Ellen Fairclough was Acting Prime Minister, being the first and only woman in Canadian political history to hold such a position, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Yukon (Mr. Nielsen):

That this House extend its sincere congratulations to the Hon. Ellen Fairclough for the significant contribution she made to Canadian political life, for being, 20 years ago today, the only woman in Canadian political history to serve as Acting Prime Minister; and requests that the Speaker write a letter of congratulations to the Hon. Ellen Fairclough on this very significant anniversary.

ANNIVERSARIES

Stanley Howard Knowles (N.D.P. House Leader)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, this is a significant day in yet another way. I hope the House will all agree with the motion that I should like to present. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Timiskaming (Mr. Peters):

That this House, taking note of the fact that today is Heritage Day, warmly commends those who are recognizing how great is our heritage, reprimands the government for having refused to proceed with its own Bills C-30 and C-32 of last session that would have made this day a holiday, and calls on the government to proceed with the necessary legislation during the course of this session, so that in February, 1979, Heritage Day will be celebrated in fact as well as in spirit.

PC

Ramon John Hnatyshyn (Deputy House Leader of the Official Opposition; Progressive Conservative Party Deputy House Leader)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ray Hnatyshyn (Saskatoon-Biggar):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move the following motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the announced intention of the Postmaster General to carry on the ill-conceived freeze on postal delivery to new urban subdivisions on the basis of the size of the deficit in the Post Office, and in view of the fact that this growing lack of service will cause a shift to alternative services, thus exacerbating the growth of the deficit in the Post Office operation, and also in view of the heavy representations made to the Postmaster General typified by petitions from city council and citizens of Saskatoon for full delivery service, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Parry Sound-Muskoka (Mr. Darling):

That this House direct the Postmaster General to implement immediately steps to provide full delivery service to Canadians and repudiates the position taken by the Prime Minister that consideration be given to terminating postal delivery service.

AGRICULTURE

PC

Robert Elgin McKinley

Progressive Conservative

Mr. R. E. McKinley (Huron-Middlesex):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent necessity. Because of the fact that the agricultural rehabilitation development agreement of the government with the province of Ontario ran out in 1975, was extended to 1977 and has been extended again to 1979,1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Perth-Wilmot (Mr. Jarvis):

That the government negotiate the normal term agreement before this latest extension runs out, and that the province of Ontario be offered agreements on projects similar to those given to governments of some other provinces in Canada.

Anything less would be nothing short of outright discrimination.
