Charles Joseph Clark (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Joe Clark (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. My motion concerns the refusal of this government to bring before parliament all aspects pertaining to the state takeover of Pacific Petroleums by Petro-Canada.

I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for North-umberland-Durham (Mr. Lawrence):

That the annual report of Petro-Canada, together with the subject matter of the takeover of Pacific Petroleums, be referred immediately to the Standing Committee on National Resources and Public Works,

PC

Thomas Charles Cossitt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent necessity concerning the fact that the government has called for proposals for the leasing of the grain elevator at Prescott, Ontario, rather than continuing on the present basis under which it is operated by the government at a substantial profit.

I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Grenville-Carleton (Mr. Baker):

Whereas the government has not made clear its full intentions, and whereas members of local 583 of the United Food Processors Union at the Canada Starch Company in Cardinal, and public service employees at the elevator itself, have expressed deep concern about the impact this situation will have on their

job security, this House requests the Minister of Transport to immediately clarify the matter in a way that will not affect job security in these areas, and also that he guarantee the Prescott grain elevator will not be leased to foreign interests, particularly United States interests which reportedly have some advance arrangement with the government which can only be considered highly improper.

Joseph Adrien Henri Lambert

Social Credit

Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the terms of Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion dealing with an important and urgent matter.

Because, when he announced the dairy policy of the government for 1975, the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Whelan) stated that the support price of industrial milk would be revised periodically to take into account increases in the cost of production of 4 per cent or more; because production costs have risen to an extent that would justify a higher support price; I move, seconded by the hon. member for Richmond (Mr. Beaudoin):

That this House urge the Minister of Agriculture to authorize an increase in the support price to be paid fully and directly to dairy producers, that it be recommended to them that they spend a few cents per additional hundredweight on publicity urging the people to consume more dairy products.

Andrew Hogan

New Democratic Party

Mr. Andy Hogan (Cape Breton-East Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of statements of the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce (Mr. Horner) urging Canadians to take domestic vacations, and in view of the fact that Parks Canada has cut down the operating season for Fort Louisbourg by four weeks, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Northwest Territories (Mr. Firth):

That the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development immediately restore the full tourist season at the fortress to promote tourism and local employment, and his department begin immediately on the restoration of the Royal Battery as requested by the Louisbourg and District Planning and Development Commission.
