Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of pressing necessity concerning the statement of the Secretary of State a few days ago that an independent audit, so-called, would be conducted of the affairs of the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews.
I move, seconded by the hon. member for Hastings (Mr. Ellis):
That the Secretary of State forthwith announce who the auditors will be, why the Auditor General of Canada is not being utilized, whether the audit will reconcile government grants given with the fact that annual reports of the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews make no mention of such grants and, finally, whether the audit will investigate bonuses from government funds to certain directors, and when and why an Air Canada pass was issued to Peter Jones, president of the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews, who has now resigned his post.
