ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

THE CANADIAN ECONOMY

PC

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 some urgency. Traditionally, the Atlantic region is the hardest hit when government, in the name of restraint, drastically changes its monetary and fiscal policies. Considering the fact that we are probably more dependent upon the small business community than most other regions of Canada, and that these very abrupt changes and abnormally high interest rates will have a very serious impact on that segment of our economy, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Central Nova (Mr. MacKay):

That the Prime Minister direct the Minister of Regional Economic Expansion to cause the preparation of a strategy in the very near future which will have the effect of offsetting any major, unbearable and unacceptable economic impact in that area.

John George Diefenbaker

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a question of urgent and pressing necessity to move the following motion:

That this House welcomes Prime Minister Begin of Israel to our country and commends President Carter of the United States, President Sadat of Egypt and Prime Minister Begin for their efforts to bring about peace in the Holy Land, and this House of Commons expresses the hope that the city of Jerusalem, on the basis of history and heritage, shall, in its entirety, be part of Israel.

Mr. Speaker:

I hope that the right hon. member will understand, from the tone of the debate which took place yesterday, that the use of this Standing Order for such a complimentary motion will soon be fulfilled without the necessity of putting the question, because we expect this honoured guest to be here very shortly.

Order, please. I am sure the right hon. member will recall that several times in the past I have refused to put the question when there has been an endeavour to use this motion for congratulatory purposes of any sort, and I think I must be consistent with that.

Alphonsus Faour

New Democratic Party

Mr. Fonse Faour (Humber-St. George's-St. Barbe):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House calls upon the Postmaster General to rescind the directive that post offices are to operate this Saturday, November 11, on a normal day service, it being the view of all members of this House that veterans employed by the Post Office should not be required to work on Remembrance Day, but that they and all Canadians should have the opportunity to show respect for those who gave their lives for this country.
