A COD'S A COD FOR A' THAT!-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43


PC

John Carnell Crosbie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John C. Crosbie (St. John's West):

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 the voiceless codfish, long forgotten by humane societies and by the world, but now at last recognized as the noble cod, is the subject of ecological and environmental as well as humane concern by a new organization founded in St. John's, Newfoundland, by Miller H. Ayre and known as Cod-Peace, of which Ayre is the cod-ordinator, and in view of the fact that the purpose of Cod-Peace is to protect the cod, particularly against the voracious, rapacious and unprovoked attacks of the savage seal, I would move, seconded by the codfatherly member for St. John's East (Mr. McGrath):

That Cod-Peace be supported and encouraged by all cod lovers of Canada and that the chief cod of Canada, the Minister of Fisheries, make arrangements for the support and protection of Cod-Peace and for arrangements to be made for a national yum flipper feast during the festival of the Easter seal in late March, since the time is at hand for all cod lovers of the world to rise since they have nothing to lose but their cod-peaces.

GOVERNMENT RESPONSIBILITY FOR ENSURING ADEQUATE SUPPLIES OF ENERGY-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

LIB

Paul Edmund McRae

Liberal

Mr. Paul E. McRae (Fort William):

Mr. Speaker, 1 rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

Given the statement of complete support by the Leader of the Opposition for the demand of Premier Lougheed for provincial control over all aspects of resources, and given that Exxon has announced the diversion of 25 per cent of Imperial Oil's supply of petroleum intended for Canada to the United States, I ask leave to move, seconded by the hon. member for Welland (Mr. Railton):

That the government reaffirms its national responsibility by ensuring that no section of this country be deprived of the benefits of the petroleum resources of the nation; also that the government, through the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources, instruct Petro-Can to begin negotiations with its counterpart in Venezuela, as it is doing in Mexico, with a view to replacing the diverted oil.

Bob Rae

New Democratic Party

Mr. Bob Rae (Broadview):

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

In view of the recent application by Canavia to expand the Toronto Island airport for use as a STOL port, and in view of the fact that such a STOL port would operate at a significant loss for the foreseeable future, would have a serious impact on the environment and would be used exclusively by business executives, not by the ordinary travelling public, and in view of the fact that the overwhelming majority of the population of the city of Toronto have expressed disapproval of such a STOL port through their elected representatives, I ask leave to move, seconded by the hon. member for Greenwood (Mr. Brewin):

That the Department of Transport intervene in hearings before the Canadian Transport Commission indicating its disapproval of the establishment of such a STOL port on Toronto Island.

ORAL QUESTION PERIOD

MEASURES TO ENSURE ADEQUATE SUPPLY OF OIL TO CANADIAN REFINERIES

PC

Allan Frederick Lawrence

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Allan Lawrence (Northumberland-Durham):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources. On at least five separate occasions in this House over the last ten days the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources has attempted to calm and soothe the fears of some of us that the Iranian disruption of crude oil supplies was serious and would bring about a worldwide shortage and that due to the lack of any meaningful policies on the part of this government, Canada is particulary vulnerable.

Because of our exposure in the House yesterday with regard to the deplorable situation of Imperial Oil, the minister has now done a complete flip-flop and agreed that the situation is serious. Because the minister is now putting the heat on Exxon of the United States and Imperial Oil of Canada because of the disruption of their offshore supplies, I wonder if he can tell us what he is going to do about a similar cutoff of offshore crude supplies to the Canadian refineries of BP, Fina, Golden Eagle and Texaco all of which are suffering because of the same type of percentage cutoff which Imperial Oil at its Montreal and Dartmouth refineries is suffering.
