ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

CRIMINAL CODE

PC

Eldon Mattison Woolliams

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Eldon M. Woolliams (Calgary North):

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

In light of the decision in the case of The Queen v. Pink Triangle Press, whereby Provincial Judge Harris dismissed a charge of obscenity because, in his words, "Parliament has failed to define immorality clearly enough so that its courts can judge what is moral and immoral as far as it affects children". I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John's East (Mr. McGrath):

That as the Attorney General of Canada is severing Bill C-21, the big amendment to the Code, and bringing in a separate bill by consent of the opposition in reference to the definition of "soliciting" and "public place" as to prostitution, that he therefore also produce in the same bill a new definition of "obscenity" as far as it affects children and, in particular, make it illegal for any publisher, either by photograph or by writing, to depict a child engaged in or participating in an act of masturbation, sexual intercourse, gross indecency, etc., in light of the fact that the city of Toronto has already experienced the horrible murder of a young boy by the name of Emanuel Jaques, and child obscenity in that city is still flourishing.

SOCIAL INSURANCE

PC

Arthur Jacob (Jake) Epp

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Jake Epp (Provencher):

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

In view of the fact that employees at the Canadian Grains Commission in Winnipeg were informed yesterday that they

would not receive their pay cheques today if they did not produce a social insurance number, this directive including employees with 20 to 30 years' service, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Saskatoon-Biggar (Mr. Hnatyshyn):

That the government remove the directive that pay cheques will not be issued to employees if they do not produce a social insurance number, and further, that the government cease expansion of the use of the social insurance number beyond the social assistance programs to which the government assured the Canadian public the usage of the social insurance number would be restricted.

REQUEST THAT GRANTS BE MADE TO AMATEUR, NOT PROFESSIONAL, SPORT-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

NDP

Stuart Malcolm Leggatt

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stuart Leggatt (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of the same Standing Order.

Not only has the Minister of State for Fitness and Amateur Sport offered some $18 million to four cities for arena construction, but she is presently offering some $29 million to the city of Vancouver for another professional complex. In the light of the result of the Soviet-NHL All-Star games, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Broadview (Mr. Rae):

That these proposals be withdrawn and that in their place the minister provide substantial funding for hockey coaching schools and genuine amateur hockey, the study of Soviet and European hockey systems, and the integration of a good hockey program into the public and post-secondary educational system. Further, that the minister get back to her proper responsibility, which is amateur sport and Fitness and not the subsidization of professional sport.

S O. 43 ENERGY REQUEST FOR STATEMENT ON AVAILABILITY OF OIL SUPPLIES- MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

J. Michael Forrestall

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. M. Forrestall (Dartmouth-Halifax East):

Mr. Speaker, 1 rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, to seek unanimous consent for the following motion.

Given the uncertainty of government action with respect to both immediate and future oil supplies for eastern refineries, and having regard to the discourtesy shown to this House by the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources in calling a press conference at 1.30 p.m. today, thus precluding an opportunity for hon. members to move under the provisions of Standing Order 26, I ask leave to move, seconded by the hon. member for Halifax-East Hants (Mr. Crosby):

That the minister rise in his place on motions at 3 p.m. today and make a full report to the House and to Canadians clarifying the situation with respect to the availability of oil supplies.
