ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

CANADIAN WHEAT BOARD

PC

Thomas Gordon Towers

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Gordon Towers (Red Deer):

Mr. Speaker, this is a matter of urgency related to the Canadian Wheat Board's intention to purchase grain cars.

The president of Palliser Wheat Growers Association says, "The current lack of grain movement off the prairies is not a railroad problem. The railroads are presently booked at only 50 per cent to 60 per cent of capacity to Thunder Bay, and only 40 per cent to 50 per cent of capacity to Vancouver" and, further, states, "Neither cars nor motive power are the problem"-when it comes to moving grain for export.

I move, seconded by the hon. member for Swift Current-Maple Creek (Mr. Hamilton):

That the Minister of Transport, in charge of the Canadian Wheat Board, release figures on which the decision was made by him or by the Wheat Board to establish there is a requirement for that board to spend hard-earned farmers' funds to buy hopper cars, because there appears to be some question as to need at this time.

FISHERIES

PC

John Carnell Crosbie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John C. Crosbie (St. John's West):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that Newfoundlanders who man the four fisheries patrol vessels operating from the province are discriminated against, since they must work three, four and sometimes more weeks at sea with only an assurance of three weeks' holidays each year, while

crews operating out of Nova Scotia have two weeks on duty and then two weeks off, I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John's East (Mr. McGrath):

That the Minister of Fisheries cease treating his Newfoundland seamen, the finest in the world, as galley slaves and treat them as if they sailed from mainland ports, with the same rates of pay and working hours and conditions as Canadians, while they patrol from outside the Arctic Circle throughout the North Atlantic waters and that man-years be authorized for the additional crew needed.

CONSUMER AFFAIRS

NDP

Reginald Cyril Symes

New Democratic Party

Mr. Cyril Symes (Sault Ste. Marie):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the report yesterday by the government's new watchdog agency, the CSIP, which blamed spiralling food costs on increased profits, up 63 per cent between the first and third quarters of this year, per unit of output-a much greater rate than unit labour costs-and in view of the fact that consumers are still bearing the burden of inflation, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North (Mr. Orlikow):

That this House instruct the Prime Minister to dismiss as unfair and unworkable the reimposition of wage controls, and ask him instead to instruct his Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs to take concrete action to protect consumers against unwarranted profit-taking, as clearly Ontario's minister of consumer and commercial relations is not prepared to act to help consumers, having instead suggested only that consumers not buy products such as turkey where profits are unnecessarily high.

CANADIAN WHEAT BOARD

PC

Ramon John Hnatyshyn (Deputy House Leader of the Official Opposition; Progressive Conservative Party Deputy House Leader)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ray Hnatyshyn (Saskatoon-Biggar):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the alarming precedent, condoned by the government, of the tender by the Canadian Wheat Board for hopper cars at the expense of the western grain producer, thereby opening the way for the requirement of primary agricultural producers and other natural resource producers to supply their own rolling-stock, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Peace River (Mr. Baldwin):

That this House reject the policy of this government to extend the user-pay policy to a policy of producer-pay.
