PC

Steve Eugene Paproski

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Steven E. Paproski (Edmonton Centre):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to introduce a motion dealing with an important matter of pressing necessity. Considering that on Thursday, May 25, the Canadiens won a brilliant victory and once again carried off the Stanley Cup, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Red Deer (Mr. Towers):

That congratulations be sent to the directors, coach and players for their success and for the fine way in which they contributed to the prestige of Canada in the world of hockey, where their fame is proverbial.

5.0. 43


PC

A. Daniel McKenzie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg South Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter or urgent and pressing necessity, under the provisions of Standing Order 43. During Tuesday's debate on my motion calling for a special committee to be established to examine how our federal tax system is forcing Canadian businessmen to invest in the United States, the hon. member for Waterloo-Cambridge (Mr. Saltsman), in disagreeing with the motion, severely criticized Canadians who choose to invest in the United States and those who have moved there to escape excessive taxation and government regulation.

In view of the hon. member's conviction that Canadians who invest in or move to the United States are greedy, venal and less than loyal to their country, and in view of the startling fact revealed by my colleague, the hon. member for Halton-Went-worth (Mr. Kempling), to the effect that this same member has or had property and business interests in the United

States, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Leeds (Mr. Cossitt):

That this House instruct the NDP House leader, the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre, to ask the hon. member for Waterloo-Cambridge to explain to the House why it is legitimate for him to have or to have had investments in the United States, but illegitimate, greedy and venal for other Canadians to have similar investments in that country.

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE

PC

Lincoln MacCauley Alexander

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Lincoln M. Alexander (Hamilton West):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. My motion concerns the fact that the Minister of Employment and Immigration (Mr. Cullen) has virtually admitted in committee that the recent $3 million advertising campaign against UIC cheating was designed to manipulate the Canadian people into believing that the commission was doing a good job. In view of the fact that this is not the first instance of the use of taxpayers' money by a public agency to manipulate the public politically and to pressure parliament, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie):

That this House condemns the use of taxpayers' money for partisan political purposes by agencies such as the Unemployment Insurance Commission, the Export Development Corporation, the Anti-Inflation Board and Petro-Canada, to name only a few, and notes that if the UIC had really wanted to discourage cheating it could have circulated warnings against it inside envelopes mailed to UIC recipients.
