ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

NATIONAL SECURITY

PC

Frank Oberle

Progressive Conservative

Mr. F. Oberle (Prince George-Peace River):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the terms of Standing Order 43. My motion relates to a directive which came out of the office of the Solicitor General with respect to the security clearance of people in sensitive and public positions.

A paragraph in the directive reads that no person can be cleared for such a position while he or she has close relatives living within the borders of such foreign nations as may cause subjection to intolerable pressures, or if he or she has recently resided in foreign countries where no check of activities is possible. Having regard to this, and since one-third of all Canadian citizens fall into this category, I ask leave to move, seconded by the hon. member for Grey-Simcoe (Mr. Mitges):

That the Solicitor General be required to rescind this directive immediately and avail himself at the earliest opportunity in the House of assuring hon. members that such clearances will not be carried out along ethnic lines.

NORTHERN AFFAIRS

NDP

Stuart Malcolm Leggatt

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stuart Leggatt (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of the same Standing Order on a matter of some urgency.

In view of the recent agreement, dated February 19 of this year, outlining the process for negotiating native land claims in the Yukon territory, in view of the undertakings given by the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development that the

federal government would negotiate directly and in good faith, and in view of the provision in clause 3 which now gives the territorial government of the Yukon complete veto power over any settlement, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Sault Ste. Marie (Mr. Symes):

That this House request the minister to delete the Yukon government veto power and accept the clear federal responsibility to negotiate, in good faith, a fair settlement of native claims in the Yukon.

NARCOTICS

PC

Robert Lloyd Wenman

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Bob Wenman (Fraser Valley West):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on an urgent matter under the provisions of Standing Order 43.

Last night's CBC airing of the television drama "Drying Up the Streets" graphically brought to light the interrelated problems of heroin addiction and prostitution. In light of the concern about prostitution expressed yesterday in this House, and in light of the many requests made by myself and my colleagues for federal financial assistance to the British Columbia heroin health entry plan, a plan which is of considerable merit and which could lead toward the resolution of the heroin addiction problem in British Columbia, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Surrey-White Rock (Mr. Friesen):

That this House recommends to the Prime Minister, the Minister of Justice, the Minister of National Health and Welfare, as well as the Solicitor General, that they request a special screening of "Drying Up the Streets" and that they spend some time with the Vancouver drug squad to witness first-hand the degradation and violence inherent in the heroin sub-culture and, further, this House recognizes the special drug problem of British Columbia by demonstrating its support for federal assistance to the British Columbia heroin health entry program.

VETERANS AFFAIRS

PC

William Hillary (Bill) Clarke

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Bill Clarke (Vancouver Quadra):

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

The Minister of National Defence (Mr. Danson) has decreed that the Canadian Forces Long Service Pensioners Association must stop using that name and that it is now to be known as "90358 Canada Incorporated". Assurances have been received that the other side of the House is not totally opposed to the organization's using its time-honoured name. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Victoria (Mr. McKinnon):

That this House directs the Minister of National Defence and the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs to rescind their objections and restore the name Canadian Forces Long Service Pensioners Association to that association.
