Mr. G. W. Baldwin (Peace River):
Mr. Speaker, I have a motion to put forward under Standing Order 43 which should appeal to all members of the House. It being quite plain from the 100th report of the Auditor General, outlining details of government spending, that the government and its bureaucracy continues to bilk Canadian taxpayers, in disregard of reports of auditors general over the last ten years or so and will continue to do so until parliament, collectively and individually, gets off the sidelines and reasserts its authority to detect, prevent and punish such action, I move:
That a parliamentary committee or committees be directed to propose ways and means of achieving the objective of coping with this massive misappropriation of public funds, and that the prime minister assign to a sympathetic minister responsibility for collaborating with such committees in bringing about parliamentary reform along these lines.
