Donald W. Munro

Mr. Donald W. Munro (Esquimalt-Saanich):

Mr. Speaker, as is my wont, I rise today, the first day of spring, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity related to Canada's horticultural potential, as symbolized by the daffodils from my riding of Esquimalt-Saanich which are available in the lobbies to all hon. members.

Donald W. Munro

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Munro (Esquimalt-Saanich):

In view of the fact that this government has failed to develop programs and policies that provide equity and equality in the area of trade and tariffs for agricultural producers, and has failed to develop programs and policies that ensure growth and development throughout the entire Canadian food system, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Elgin (Mr. Wise):

That the government move immediately to implement and amend the tariff motion to provide much needed tariff measures for producers this season, 1979, including commodity by commodity surcharges and surtaxes, and that measures be introduced to ensure a greater degree of self-sufficiency in the Canadian food system, thereby reducing the reliance of Canadian consumers on imported food supplies.

SC

Joseph Adrien Henri Lambert

Social Credit

Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):

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 important matter of pressing necessity.

In view of the fact that the ever rising cost of feed grain triggers increasing prices for meat, eggs and other products, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Richmond (Mr. Beaudoin):

That the House urge the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Whelan) and the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce (Mr. Horner) to launch an investigation to see if there is any abuse or irregularities occurring between grain growers and shipment to eastern millers and to correct that anomaly if necessary.

PC

Dean Waldon Whiteway

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dean Whiteway (Selkirk):

Mr. Speaker, I too rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43.

In consideration of the refusal by the NHL to permit the entry of Edmonton, Winnipeg, and Quebec City, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Portage (Mr. Masniuk) and the hon. member for Edmonton Centre (Mr. Paproski):

That the Minister of State responsible for CBC direct the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to either cover all professional hockey in Canada or to change the name of "Hockey Night in Canada" to "Hockey Night in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver."

THE CANADIAN ECONOMY

PC

A. Daniel McKenzie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg South Centre):

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

In light of the recent announcement by the Minister of Finance (Mr. Chretien) that a National Commission on Inflation, with 100 employees, will be established to study high food prices, which is a duplication of the mandate of the Department of Consumer and Corporate Affairs which now operates with 2,700 employees in 38 departments, at a cost of $76 million annually, I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. Boniface (Mr. Hare):

That this House direct the Minister of Finance to drop plans for appointing a National Commission on Inflation and that the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs be directed to carry out his department's mandate to monitor and report unjust food price increases as well as increases in other commodities.
