Mr. John C. Crosbie (St. John's West):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43.
Air Canada, in its magazine "En Route", distributed in aircraft ostensibly to inform the travelling public, carries a guide to what is happening across the country, entitled "Canada Calendar 1978", outlining events across Canada which travellers may wish to attend. Since the province of Newfoundland is not included in this calendar, leaving unrepresented the most interesting and culturally stimulating part of Canada, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Saskatoon-Biggar (Mr. Hnatyshyn):
That the president of Air Canada, Claude Taylor, be summoned before the bar of the House to explain this strange, if not sinister, omission, including an explanation as to why Newfoundland has been separated from Canada without even a referendum, and that Mr. Taylor be sentenced to one week's landings by aircraft at Torbay airport, after midnight and in fog, without the guidance of air traffic control as proposed by the Minister of Transport in his drive for economy, particularly in essential services.
