Mr. John Wise (Elgin):
Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the unilateral and untimely decision by the government to remove the subsidy to the milling industry, which will cause not only instability within the processing industry but also dramatic price increases to Canadian consumers, especially those who can least afford these increases at this time, I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John's East (Mr. McGrath):
That the Minister of Transport revise this policy and implement a program to include a three-year phase-out plan and, secondly, establish a price quotation system by the Canadian Wheat Board for two or three-month periods to reduce market fluctuations, to add stability to the industry and to minimize price increases to Canadian consumers.
