ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS

PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

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

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

In view of the vast mineral discoveries made in northern Saskatchewan, which will require railway transit construction if the fabulous potential for Canada is to be attained, the Canadian National Railways should proceed without further delay to give consideration, in the national interest, to commencing construction of a railroad into these areas, to Lac La Ronge and 100 miles north with the railhead, of course, being in the city of Prince Albert.

LOCATION OF CENTRE FOR OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

PC

Lincoln MacCauley Alexander

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Lincoln M. Alexander (Hamilton West):

Mr. Speaker, I, too, rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity having to do with the implementation of the Centre for Occupational Health and Safety.

Given the fact that the best medical and scientific expertise in occupational health and safety is available in the city of Hamilton, particularly at McMaster University, and given the fact that Hamilton, the industrial heartland of the country, is now, I understand, fourth on the short list, I ask leave to move,

seconded by the hon. member for Vegreville (Mr. Mazankow-ski):

That the government, in the national interest, gives serious consideration to the establishment of the centre in the city of Hamilton because of the obvious industrial environment and available expertise.

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. The hon. member will realize that this is a direct representation on behalf of his own constituency. As such, I am sure he will agree that that is not the purpose of the provisions of Standing Order 43.

CALL FOR PETRO-CANADA TO BE SOLE AGENCY FOR IMPORTING OIL-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

NDP

John Edward Broadbent

New Democratic Party

Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday the president of Imperial Oil directly snubbed the twofold request by the Government of Canada that no diversion of Venezuelan oil destined for Canada should take place, and that Imperial Oil establish direct contact with the Venezuelan government rather than operating through its parent, Exxon corporation, in the United States.

This naive move by the Government of Canada and the arrogant rejection of Canadian sovereignty by Imperial Oil are unacceptable. I would therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House asserts that the diversion of Venezuelan oil by the Exxon corporation is not acceptable to the Parliament of Canada and that the government establish immediately Petro-Canada as the sole agency for importing offshore oil into our country.

PUBLIC WORKS

PC

Robert Elgin McKinley

Progressive Conservative

Mr. R. E. McKinley (Huron-Middlesex):

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

Repeatedly over the past 2Vi years I have asked the government for a clear indication of whether, and when, the Department of Public Works will be put on a revenue dependent basis so as to cut down on excessive spending by departments. Since the government has continually given vague support, but no substance, to the idea despite the recommendations of the other place and the opposition and a history of studies going back to the Glassco commission, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie):

That the Minister of Public Works make a statement on motions indicating whether the government intends to adopt the "user pays" principle of financing public works, so that the House may have a dear sense of where the government is moving on this issue before it has to deal with yet another set of estimates.
