Mr. J. P. Nowlan (Annapolis Valley):
Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity which flows out of the Prime Minister's (Mr. Trudeau) press conference yesterday.
In view of the incredible appointment of Bryce Mackasey as chairman of the board of Air Canada, the airline owned by the people of Canada which is its flagship abroad and just recently
operated at a profit, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Egmont (Mr. MacDonald):
That in view of the new chairman's history of spending binges at the Post Office and the Unemployment Insurance Commission, this House requests the Prime Minister to assure concerned Canadians that the new chairman is to play the political figurehead role which he plays so well, but is to have nothing to do with the operations of the airline.
