ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

FISHERIES

PC

Jack Marshall

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Jack Marshall (Humber-St. George's-St. Barbe):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. A petition from some 40,000 Newfoundland citizens presented to the House of Commons last year gave rise to a non-partisan amendment to the Fisheries Act which requires permission from the Minister of Fisheries and the Environment to enter the area of the seal hunt and gives increased powers to fisheries officers to apprehend violators. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John's East (Mr. McGrath):

That this House orders that the minister of fisheries and the environment give warning to intended violators of the act of the penalties that they will face on illegal entry, such warning to be given such wide publicity that will prevent the needless hostility which could occur at this year's hunt.

CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY

NDP

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

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, as one who remembers not only the depression years, but also as one who remembers-for an even longer period of time-what the CPR has done to its employees, both working and retired, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Nanai-mo-Cowichan-The Islands (Mr. Douglas), who also remembers:

That this House, noting that the Canadian Pacific Railway pays its president a salary of $330,000 a year, calls on the government to review and make public

the massive extent to which this corporation receives public funds, and insists that the CPR increase immediately the level of pensions paid to its retired employees and their survivors, at least to the full extent recommended in the Noel Hall report of 1976.

SOCIAL SECURITY

SC

Eudore Allard

Social Credit

Mr. Eudore Allard (Rimouski):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion on an urgent and important matter.

Considering the unprecedented rate of unemployment now affecting the country and the fact that numerous workers are forced to retire before age 65 and consequently are not entitled to the old age pension, which creates unjustified difficulties for them, and considering that early retirement would greatly contribute to reducing unemployment, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bellechasse (Mr. Lambert):

That this House urge the Minister of National Health and Welfare to take the necessary measures so that those retiring at age 60 or more could benefit from the old age security pension as well as the guaranteed income supplement.

GOVERNMENT ADMINISTRATION

PC

John Carnell Crosbie

Progressive Conservative

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

Mr. Speaker, 1 rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the reports of wholesale theft and fraudulent conversion, without colour of right, but attempting to appear to the right, of policies and principles of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada by pragmatic Liberal swingers at the weekend Liberal policy-swiping convention in Ottawa, and in view of the hanging given by liberal swingers to the leftist, state-ist and collectivist view of the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau) as enunciated by him in rare but candid and frank New Year's confessions between electoral bouts, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Hamilton West (Mr. Alexander):

That this House direct the Minister of Justice to investigate and to charge the Liberal Party of Canada with theft of policies and principles of the PC party, though not with use of the same, and that the courts be informed that a plea for mercy be considered in view of the desperation as to electoral prospects that induced the said theft and fraudulent conversion.
