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 unnecessarily offensive nature of the article entitled "Confessions of an Ex-Priest" in the Weekend magazine of March 3, having no redeeming social purpose or point other than sensationalism in attempting the degrading of a major Christian religion and libelling those who serve that cause, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Vegreville (Mr. Mazankowski):
That this Flouse regrets the poor taste and deplorable lack of honest journalistic standards of Weekend magazine as shown in the issue of March 3 and hopes that such a lamentable lack of judgment and good taste will not be repeated.
