Mr. Otto Jelinek (High Park-Humber Valley):
Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.
In view of the fact that internal bickering by Hockey Canada and the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association has caused postponement of the scheduled Canada Cup series this fall, and because this announcement comes on the heels of the impressive Soviet victory over the NHL, thereby creating a somewhat non-sportsmanlike impression around the world, 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Hastings (Mr. Ellis):
That this House not only compliment the Soviets for their brilliant Challenge Cup Victory, but instruct the Minister of State (Fitness and Amateur Sport) to take all necessary action in resolving the differences between the two hockey bodies which fall within her jurisdiction, namely, Hockey Canada and the CAHA, in order to give Canadians the opportunity to recreate the emotional and unifying Canada Cup series of the past, as scheduled.
Subtopic: HOCKEY-REQUEST THAT DIFFERENCES CONCERNING CANADA CUP BE RESOLVED-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
