ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

INCOME TAX

PC

Ramon John Hnatyshyn (Deputy House Leader of the Official Opposition; Progressive Conservative Party Deputy House Leader)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ray Hnatyshyn (Saskatoon-Biggar):

Mr. Speaker, 1 rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, to move a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

This afternoon, the government of the province of Saskatchewan intends to announce that it will permit the deduction of mortgage interest expense from personal income taxes, thus repudiating the national Leader of the New Democratic Party who says that such a program is a sop to the rich and does nothing to help the poor.

Ramon John Hnatyshyn (Deputy House Leader of the Official Opposition; Progressive Conservative Party Deputy House Leader)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Hnatyshyn:

I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Meadow Lake (Mr. Cadieu):

That this House directs the government to follow the precedent, set by at least some of their NDP brothers, reverse their previous wrong-headed policy, and recommends that the federal government introduce a similar program of mortgage interest deductibility together with property taxes deductibility for the benefit of all Canadian taxpayers.

I want to thank the Leader of the New Democratic Party for also agreeing.

Mr. Hnatyshyn:

How do you feel about being repudiated, Ed? It is a divided party.

CONSUMER AFFAIRS

NDP

Stanley Howard Knowles (N.D.P. House Leader)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, this being International Women's Day, I believe that we should recognize and try to assist a group of women in this country who are trying to do something about one of the serious problems that faces all our people.

I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Sault Ste. Marie (Mr. Symes):

That this House calls on the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs to make available to WARP, Women Against Rising Prices, the necessary funding and the assistance of nis department so that this movement, which is mobilizing Ontario consumers, can become a national organization and give leadership to consumers from coast to coast in the fight for fair prices.

MEASURES TO ENSURE ADEQUATE SUPPLY OF OIL TO EAST COAST REFINERIES-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

SC

Léonel Beaudoin

Social Credit

Mr. Leonel Beaudoin (Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move the following motion.

Considering the scope of the recommendations in the report of the National Energy Board published on February 28 past; considering the precarious and uncertain situation of eastern Canada following reduced fuel supplies from Iran; considering the decision of Exxon Corporation to divert oil supplies meant for Canada to the United States, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Shefford (Mr. Rondeau):

That the government seriously consider the possibility of extending the Sarnia-Montreal gas pipeline into eastern Canada so that the energy needs of that part of the country are met and that we are no longer dependent on multinationals and oil exportating countries.
