Mr. David MacDonald (Egmont):
Mr. Speaker, I rise in conformity with the provisions of Standing Order 43. In light of the inability of the federal government to explain its unilateral termination of support for the land registration and information service, and its failure to complete its obligations to the three maritime provinces for an up to date land registry system, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Dartmouth-Halifax East (Mr. Forrestall):
That the Prime Minister immediately indicate the increased cost to these three provinces to complete the changeover to this new system or the reversal to the former one, secondly, the lost revenue which would have been forthcoming in the development of a new export technology for the region and, finally, the number of jobs lost in the exodus of many highly trained personnel.
