J. Michael Forrestall

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. M. Forrestall (Dartmouth-Halifax East):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion of urgency and concern to a number of Canadians. It has now been some 14 weeks without settlement of claims of the surviving families of those killed in the crash of the PWA Boeing jet at Cranbrook on February 11.

In light of the agreement that came out during the coroner's inquiry among counsel for Pacific Western Airlines, the Boeing Aircraft Company, the manufacturer of the reverse thrusters, the town of Cranbrook and others to pool the liability so that claims might be at least partially settled, thereby relieving the undue financial distress caused by this accident, and in light of the failure of this proposal being implemented because of refusal by counsel for the Ministry of Transport, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Kootenay West (Mr. Brisco):

That this House direct counsel for the Ministry of Transport to immediately review its position with respect to the pooling of liability so that some measure of relief from the Financial burden imposed on these families may be realized.

Jack Burnett Murta

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Jack Murta (Lisgar):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, that being the mounting crisis in Canada's grain industry reflected in what as of this week amounts to a one million ton backlog in shipping. Ships are now waiting to load grain in all Canadian ports-Vancouver,

Thunder Bay and on the St. Lawrence. Because of the seriousness of this matter, which will reflect itself in lower quota levels, a larger than expected carry-over of western Canadian grain, and demurrage charges that will be the highest on record, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Swift Current-Maple Creek (Mr. Hamilton):

That the government immediately pass an order in council freeing money for the 4,000 grain hopper cars the Canadian Wheat Board has requested and launch immediately into a boxcar rehabilitation program.

Mr. Stuart Leggatt (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of the same Standing Order. In view of the allegations that the hon. member for York-Simcoe (Mr. Stevens) has violated the privileges of this House, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Central Nova (Mr. MacKay):

That in the event our Speaker Finds a prima facie question of privilege in that case, that this House at the same time be given an opportunity to vote again on the question raised concerning the violations of the privileges of the hon. member for Nickel Belt-
