ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

CULTURAL AFFAIRS

PC

Thomas Charles Cossitt

Progressive Conservative

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.

EXTERNAL AFFAIRS

PC

Dean Waldon Whiteway

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dean Whiteway (Selkirk):

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

In consideration of the representations made by Governor Link, of North Dakota, to the Congress of the United States for additional funding to continue construction of the Garrison diversion project, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Provencher (Mr. Epp):

That the Secretary of State for External Affairs make a statement on motions today outlining Canada's official position on the International Joint Commission's final recommendations for the Garrison diversion project.

THE SEAL HUNT

PC

John Carnell Crosbie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John C. Crosbie (St. John's West):

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

In view of the fact that the leader of the NDP in Nova Scotia, Mr. Jeremy Ackerman, refused to support the introduction of a resolution in that legislature endorsing the seal hunt off the east coast of Canada and offering support and encouragement to the fishermen of east coast Canada in pursuing their lawful activities, introduced by the minister of development, thus refusing to support the workingmen of east coast Canada, unjustly criticized for engaging in their traditional fishing occupation, I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John's East (Mr. McGrath):

That this House condemns the leader of the NDP in Nova Scotia for his refusal to support the activities of Canadian fishermen and regrets his party's lack of concern for the workingmen of Newfoundland, the Magdalen Islands and east coast Canada generally.

SUGGESTION THAT PUBLIC FUNDS BE USED TO SUBSIDIZE "HANSARD"-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

NDP

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

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, and seconded by the hon. member for Sault Ste. Marie (Mr. Symes), I move:

March 9, 1979

That this House notes that public funds are used to subsidize the press gallery and to cover the cost of televising our proceedings, as well as to publish and distribute great quantities of government informational material, and this House therefore asserts that it is appropriate for public funds to be used to subsidize the distribution of Hansard at a reasonable subscription rate, so that those who wish to receive the official record of the debates of this House will be encouraged to do so.
