Mr. Eymard Corbin (Madavraska-Victoria):
Mr. Speaker pursuant to Standing Order 43, 1 ask the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion dealing with an important matter of pressing and urgent necessity.
In view of the fact that Canada Works projects have been submitted to the consideration of all members for criticisms, comments and recommendations as in past years by the Minister of Employment and Immigration (Mr. Atkey), in view of the fact that hundreds of projects have remained on the desk of the minister for weeks with the result that the application of the program has been seriously delayed, and in view of the fact that the staff of Canada Works in Ottawa have been systematically instructed to tell hon. members that the projects are awaiting the approval of the minister, whereas at the same time defeated Progressive Conservative candidates, local pork-barrel cronies and other wrecks of the party announced the approval of the projects to the sponsors, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Westmorland-Kent (Mr. LeBlanc):
That the Prime Minister of Canada (Mr. Clark) immediately ask the Minister of Employment and Immigration to offer explanations or even apologies for allowing systematic double-dealing as regards information to hon. members.
Sub-subtopic: CANADA WORKS PROGRAM-REQUEST FOR EXPLANATION OF ANNOUNCEMENT ON CERTAIN PROJECTS-MOTION UNDER S O. 43
