Mr. Cecil Smith (Churchill):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Over the past week, in Toronto, we have been told that 12 people lost their lives due to fire. I do not feel we should stand idly by without taking some positive action. Therefore, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Okanagan Boundary (Mr. Whittaker):
That the Government of Canada withdraw the federal sales tax on smoke detectors and smoke detection equipment.
Sub-subtopic: REQUESTED WITHDRAWAL OF SALES TAX ON SMOKE DETECTION EQUIPMENT-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
