ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

THE SEAL HUNT

PC

James Aloysius McGrath

Progressive Conservative

Mr. James A. McGrath (St. John's East):

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

If the House gives the necessary consent to my motion, I forgo the right to debate and I will also forgo the right to present the very substantial arguments supporting my motion. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Bonaven-ture-Iles-de-la-Madeleine (Mr. Bechard):

That this House reaffirms the right of Canadian sealers to go about their legitimate pursuit under the strict supervision of the Government of Canada and the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, free from harassment and interference.

AIR TRANSPORT

PC

Donald Frank Mazankowski

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Don Mazankowski (Vegreville):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In June of 1976, Transport Canada's committee on air traffic services' operational interfaces with aeradio stations outlined serious defects in communications procedures relative to air traffic control centres and aeradio stations.

Since the committee described this situation as being clearly dangerous, and since the recommendations advanced by the

committee have not been implemented, despite their strong expression of the urgent need for immediate action, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Central Nova (Mr. MacKay):

That a clear statement be made by the minister relative to this report, outlining the areas where recommendations have not been acted upon and the reasons for the minister's failure to act.

COMMUNICATIONS

NDP

Reginald Cyril Symes

New Democratic Party

Mr. Cyril Symes (Sault Ste. Marie):

Mr. Speaker, I seek to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43. On March 2, Bell Canada submitted a petition asking the governor in council to overturn the decision of CRTC that revenue from the $1.1 billion Saudi Arabia contract be treated as part of Bell Canada's ordinary revenues for regulatory purposes.

In view of the fact that the CRTC is supposed to regulate Bell's telephone rates according to the level of profitability of Bell's operations and the kinds of contracts and undertakings entered into by Bell Canada and their effects on Bell's earnings, and since Bell Canada has chosen to enter into this contract directly, rather than through a subsidiary operation, thereby making Canadian telephone subscribers liable through increased rates for any loss which might be incurred as the result of the contract, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That the House recommend that the petition be denied.

HUMAN RIGHTS


5.0. 43


?

Mr. C.-A. Gauthier@Roberval

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, 1 ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion dealing with an urgent matter of pressing necessity.

Since it is now obvious that computer snoopers can easily obtain confidential information from national and continental data bank with startling easiness, as evidenced in an article in the Globe and Mail of today entitled: "Computer Snooper Finds It's Easy Work" in which an expert finds it easy to use computers to intrude in the private life of people; and considering that the Canadian government is increasingly dependent on that kind of data to obtain information on its citizens, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Lotbiniere (Mr. Janelle):

That the House take necessary steps in the shortest possible time so that individuals may provide in all security the information required by departments without any fear that such information may be used for unlawful purposes.
