Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):
Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion on an important and urgent matter.
In view of the statement made last Sunday by the leader of the Quebec Liberal party to the effect that stubbornness of the federal government in the dispute over the sales tax has increased the popular appeal of the independent option of the Quebec government, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):
That this House request the government to alter its policies which, in addition to being unfair, also do considerable harm to the unity of the country, and that it agree to revise its current position with regard to the sales tax.
