SMALL BUSINESS

LIB

John Leslie Evans

Liberal

Mr. John Evans (Ottawa Centre):

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

In view of the current plight of small business in the Ottawa-Carleton region, and of the drastic implications for these small businesses as a result of this government's plans to cut 60,000 jobs from the public service, and in view of the fact that the federal government is about to sign the Eastern Ontario Rural and Economic Development Subsidiary Agreement with the government of the province of Ontario and to exclude the Ottawa-Carleton region from assistance under this agreement, contrary to the expressed desires of the province, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Ottawa-Carleton (Mr. Pepin):

That this House instruct the government to amend this agreement prior to signing, so as to allow small businesses in the Ottawa-Carleton region to qualify for assistance.

EXTERNAL AFFAIRS

PC

Otto John Jelinek (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Transport)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Otto Jelinek (Halton):

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

Earlier this week, a behind-closed-doors kangaroo court In Prague, Czechoslovakia, convicted five human rights activits to a total of 19'/2 years in jail. In view of the fact that both Canada and Czechoslovakia, amongst other countries, are signatories to the Helsinki Agreement, which in this case has once again been grossly abused, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Windsor West (Mr. Gray):

That this House express its very strong concern to the government of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic for allowing its so-called courts to neglect the basic decencies of human rights and, further, that the Secretary of State for External Affairs request of the Czechoslovak government that it abide by the Agreement signed in Helsinki in 1975 by both countries and repudiate the decision of that court so as not to further undermine the Helsinki Agreement orginally intended to protect and support human rights activities around the world.

Marie Thérèse Rollande Killens

Liberal

Mrs. Therese Killens (Saint-Michel):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under Standing Order 43 to ask for the unanimous consent of the House to introduce a motion on an urgent and pressing matter.

In view of the fact that Quebec Premier Rene Levesque wants a "yes" to his referendum question, that we do not yet know the wording of the question, although we know for sure that it will be ambiguous, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Etobicoke North (Mr. MacLaren):

October 25, 1979

That the House urge the right hon. Prime Minister to "resurrect" the proposed federal referendum legislation in order to protect all Canadians.

HUMAN RIGHTS

LIB

Jesse Philip Flis

Liberal

Mr. Jesse Flis (Parkdale-High Park):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, to move a motion of the utmost urgency.

Given the plight of 69-year old Dimiter Kolev, who is imprisoned and in failing health in a Bulgarian concentration camp for the offence of campaigning on behalf of an opposition political party, and given the refusal of the Secretary of State for External Affairs (Miss MacDonald) to meet with Mr. Kolev's son, Stefan, who is in Ottawa at this time, on the grounds that she lacks a basis under international law to intervene on his behalf, I move, seconded by the hon. member for York Centre (Mr. Kaplan):

That this House urge the Secretary of State for External Affairs to meet with Stefan Kolev forthwith as a First step in a campaign by the Government of Canada to secure the release of Dimiter Kolev from detention, consistent with the gospel of human rights espoused by the Secretary of State before the United Nations last September.
