John Edward Broadbent

New Democratic Party

Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the Liberal party resolutions approved this past weekend calling for an increase in government expenditures in many specific areas, while at the same time approving the tightening of the money supply, halting growth in the public service and limiting government spending, I move, seconded by the member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles)-that hon. relic from the depression days:

That this House agrees that this hallucinatory batch of resolutions supports the view of the hon. member for Vancouver-Kingsway that the Liberal party has gone to pot.

Arthur John (Art) Lee

Liberal

Mr. Art Lee (Vancouver East):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the statement which the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Clark) made in Hanna, Alberta, on February 24, 1978, and in view of the fact such statement described European Canadians as "thinkers" and not "builders" of this great country and that those Canadians of European descent, whether from the Ukraine, Italy, Poland, Germany, Scotland or England, have all contributed greatly to

[Mr. Speaker.)

Canadian society, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Kent-Essex (Mr. Daudlin):

That this House condemn the artificial distinction made by the Leader of the Opposition as to North American and European Canadians, and that this House recognizes the great contribution of Canadians of European descent to our society and our nation.

Mr. Speaker, on a point of order, no one said "No" on this side. If anybody said "No", it was on the other side.

AGRICULTURE

PC

Arthur Jacob (Jake) Epp

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Jake Epp (Provencher):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that agricultural offshore labour is vital to the continuation of a healthy Canadian agricultural community, especially in horticultural pursuits, and in view of the fact that agricultural organizations have repeatedly asked the government to continue arrangements for offshore agricultural workers, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Carleton-Charlotte (Mr. McCain):

That the government continue the program of allowing offshore agricultural workers into Canada at levels not less than those of previous years.

ORAL QUESTION PERIOD

FINANCE

Sinclair McKnight Stevens

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Sinclair Stevens (York-Simcoe):

Mr. Speaker, in the absence of the Minister of Finance and the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce, perhaps I could direct my question to the second acting minister of industry, trade and commerce, the Minister of Employment and Immigration. As the government has represented for some time that our "crash dollar", which crashed down to 89 cents, would at least aid exports, will the minister indicate what happened in the month of January, when our exports dropped 16.9 per cent, a drop even greater than our imports-just the reverse of what was represented?
