Gilles Caouette

Social Credit

Mr. Gilles Caouette (Temiscamingue):

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

Considering that the "C" team of the Canadian Alpine Ski Association is asking for $2,000 and $1,500 from the athletes to make up the deficit incurred by that association; considering that under the Loto Canada contract the Minister of State (Fitness and Amateur Sport) (Mrs. Campagnolo) has made Canadians lose $15 million; considering that the same minister refuses to pay the $35,000 deficit of the Canadian Ski Association and that it is unacceptable to lay the burden of that deficit on the athletes, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Villeneuve (Mr. Caouette):

That parliament enjoin the minister to pay $35,000 to the Alpine Ski Association and free the athletes so as to enable them to concentrate on sports.

Independent

Mr. Leonard C. Jones (Moncton):

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

Whereas the Department of Secretary of State agreed to grant, directly or indirectly, the sum of $215,000 for aid in the financial situation of L'Evangeline newspaper in Moncton, and whereas other newspapers in Canada have not been so favoured, and whereas such financial assistance leaves some doubt as to possible government interference with the freedom of the press and the free enterprise system generally, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Palliser (Mr. Schumacher):

That this House strongly object to such action and request the Secretary of State to reconsider this move in light of strong opposition to this type of grant to newspapers.

Stan Darling

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Stan Darling (Parry Sound-Muskoka):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, I ask leave to move the following motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

Given that our international travel account for the fourth quarter of 1978 reflected a higher deficit in the amount of $351 million, an increase of 7.3 per cent over the previous year, and considering the tremendous potential in attracting more tourists from the United States, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Oxford (Mr. Halliday):

That the government take urgent and necessary action to combat the amount in travel deficit and announce the establishment of a secretariat for tourism, and implement some form of controlled deregulation vis-a-vis airlines' operations to Canada in order to encourage an increased flow of visitors to Canada.

Jacques Guilbault

Liberal

Mr. Jacques Guilbault (Saint-Jacques):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 and seek the unanimous consent of the House to discuss a motion relating to an urgent matter of national import.

It relates to the unfair and, I think, poorly balanced broadcast the CBC gave of the inaugural speech yesterday before the National Assembly of Quebec. As hon. members know, the French network of the CBC fully covered the Quebec premier's speech but refused to extend the same privilege to the leaders of the opposition parties. The House will recall that the CBC had also given poor coverage to the Progressive Conservative convention nearly a year ago. Therefore, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Labelle (Mr. Dupras):

That the House urge the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to appear before the Standing Committee on Broadcasting, Films and Assistance to the Arts and to explain its attitude.
