Mr. Douglas Roche (Edmonton-Strathcona):

Mr. Speaker, in view of the fact that the Belgrade Review Conference is now drawing to a conclusion with little progress having been made on the question of human rights, and that a final communique which makes no reference to the increasing violations of human rights would be a mockery of the terms of the Helsinki Final Act, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Egmont (Mr. MacDonald):

That this House urges the government of Canada to maintain a strict refusal to endorse any final communique which makes no reference to human rights.

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43. In a document entitled "A Legacy of Spending", compiled by Edward Murphy of CJOR radio, Vancouver, on mismanagement and waste within the federal government over the past ten years, the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau) is quoted as saying in 1969: "We would be on the way to financial disaster-"

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the statement by the Minister of National Health and Welfare to the Canadian Press that she is ready to close the mercury contaminated English-Wabigoon River system, and in view of the fact that the native people of the area called on the federal governmnent to close the river system years ago in order to protect the health of the people in the area, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Northwest Territories (Mr. Firth):

That this House demand that the minister close the said river system forthwith and provide adequate compensation for those whose livelihood would be affected by such closure.
