ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

REQUEST FOR INCREASE IN INITIAL PRICE OF NO. I AND NO. 2 WHEAT-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43.

Having regard to the fact that although during the past weeks wheat has been selling out of Vancouver and Thunder Bay at between $4.50 and $4.70 a bushel, and that the initial price for wheat for the farmer at the farm gate is only $2.75,1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Saskatoon-Biggar (Mr. Hnatyshyn):

That this House requests the initial price of No. 1 and No. 2 wheat be increased immediately by at least 50 cents a bushel.

SOCIAL INSURANCE

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.

Noting the decision of the Minister of Employment and Immigration (Mr. Cullen) to form an advisory council to study the increasing use of social insurance numbers only after persistent pressure by the official opposition, and noting with dismay and incredulity further evidence of government expansion of the use of SIN in that the Canadian Transport Commission now requires all domestic charter passengers to provide their SIN if they wish to profit from the savings of

advance booking, that Statistics Canada demands farmers' SIN in their agricultural enumerative survey, and that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation uses the SIN as an employee identification number, I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John's East (Mr. McGrath):

That the minister immediately convene the advisory council and instruct it to report as soon as possible so that legislation limiting the continued expansion of SIN can be introduced after the Christmas recess and, in any event, before 1984.

CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION

NDP

Lorne Edmund Nystrom (Whip of the N.D.P.)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):

Mr. Speaker, in recent days I and other members, such as the hon. member for Regina-Lake Centre (Mr. Benjamin), have received several complaints from farm people regarding a recent program about beef farming on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation entitled "High Steaks". Farmers claim that, like the program last year on grain entitled "What Breadbasket", the program was biased, one-sided and it did not represent a true overview of various opinions on the beef industry.

Accordingly, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Regina-Lake Centre (Mr. Benjamin):

That this House recommends to CBC president A1 Johnson that he review the position of Mr. Don Baron as director of agricultural and resource programming and ensure that the CBC maintains a high standard of objective broadcasting in their agricultural and resource programming.

NATIONAL FILM BOARD

LIB

Jean-Robert Gauthier

Liberal

Mr. Jean-Robert Gauthier (Ottawa-Vanier):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion dealing with an important matter of pressing necessity.

Considering the decision of the National Film Board to abolish the Francophone regional production centres in Ontario and western Canada; considering that such a decision will deprive Francophone minorities outside Quebec of an important communication and cultural tool and will also prevent them from obtaining the provincial government and nongovernment funds they need to operate, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Vaudreuil (Mr. Herbert):

That the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau) and the Secretary of State (Mr. Roberts) call on the administrative board of the NFB to justify that reprehensible action which did not contribute to the cultural survival of Francophone minorities outside Quebec when it abolished French regionalization in Ontario and western Canada.
