HEALTH AND WELFARE

PC

Paul Yewchuk

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Paul Yewchuk (Athabasca):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the partial ban placed on the use of sodium nitrates in bacon by the United States government because of the possible carcinogenic property of nitrosamines, and in view of the usual unwillingness of this government to state its position, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Lambton-Kent (Mr. Holmes):

That the Minister of National Health and Welfare state on motions whether she plans any changes in the use of nitrosamines which many believe pose a threat to the health of Canadians.

PC

Thomas Charles Cossitt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on an urgent matter relating to the same subject I raised yesterday, namely, extensive government grants to the Centre for Experimental Art and Communications in Toronto, whose chief spokesman, Amerigo Marrass, has, in addition to their already expressed support for Italian terrorism, stated in a Toronto newspaper today that the "Aldo Moro murder is just a red herring" and that "all this fuss and crying over Moro ... we have to think of more important issues". I move, seconded by the hon. member for Central Nova (Mr. MacKay):

That this House requests the Prime Minister, for a second time, to make a detailed statement as to why the government has given such an organization extensive sums of public money from the Department of Secretary of State and the Department of External Affairs and, specifically, for the Prime Minister to advise the House if the disgraceful statement made by the Secretary of State to

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 unanimous resolution approved by all political parties yesterday in the National Assembly of the province of Quebec indicating strong disapproval of the federal government's intention to make direct income tax payments to Quebec citizens as a means of circumventing the constitutional authority of the government of the province of Quebec, and considering that an identical position has been taken by other provincial governments as well as by opposition parties in this House and a significant number of Liberal members of parliament, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House urges the government, in the interests of national unity, to withdraw Bill C-56 and bring forward new legislation which would specifically compensate provincial governments directly in respect of the federal government's sales tax proposal.

REQUEST PROVINCES HAVE JURISDICTION OVER DIRECT TAXATION-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

SC

Charles-Arthur Gauthier

Social Credit

Mr. C. A. Gauthier (Roberval):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion dealing with a matter of pressing necessity.

In light of the statement of the Minister of State for Urban Affairs (Mr. Ouellet) who said on television last night that his government would withdraw from joint programs with municipalities, thus admitting that the late Lester B. Pearson was right when he wanted to abolish all joint programs so as to hand over the authority taken from the provinces, and as we have always suggested that it was the only necessary condition to improve the climate in federal-provincial relations, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bellechasse (Mr. Lambert):

That the federal government withdraw from direct taxation which, before the federal government insidiously laid hands on it, belonged exclusively to the provinces under the original constitution, and give back all direct taxes to those provinces.
