TRANSPORT

LIB

Edward C. Lumley

Liberal

Mr. Ed Lumley (Stormont-Dundas):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, under the terms of Standing Order 43. Today it was reported that a commissioner of the Canadian Transport Commission had made an incredible statement, that with so many freight movements, the occasional accident was necessary.

In view of the fact that the CTC has yet to issue any orders for interim changes in the regulations during the inquiry period governing the transportation of dangerous goods, and since in every major city in Canada hazardous products are being transported in substantial quantities every day, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Laprairie (Mr. Deniger):

That the Minister of Transport use his discretionary power to issue interim regulations with respect to the transportation of dangerous commodities, such as the reduction in speed of trains carrying such products through densely populated areas, and the assurance that explosive materials will not be carried on the same train as toxic gases.

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 Oshawa (Mr. Broadbent), I move:

That this House warmly welcomes the recognition by the Minister of National Health and Welfare that older women, particularly those of single status, are having a difficult time trying to cope with seriously inadequate levels of income,

and this House calls on the government not to make this group wait for years while reviews take place, but to introduce at this session amendments to our pension legislation which will provide pension levels for older and unattached women that will give them the dignity and security they so clearly deserve.

REQUEST THAT REVIEW OF PROGRAMS BE CARRIED OUT UNDER INQUIRIES ACT-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

LIB

Jacques Raymond (Ray) Chénier

Liberal

Mr. Ray Chenier (Timmins-Chapleau):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, to ask that the House consider a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. The Minister of National Health and Welfare (Mr. Crombie) has initiated a review of health programs in Canada under the esteemed Mr. Justice Emmett Hall.

In view of the fact that Mr. Justice Hall has been assigned to the review on a contract basis under very restrictive terms of reference, and since a commission legally constituted under the Inquiries Act can be the only effective forum to get at the realities of the medical health situation in Canada, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for London West (Mr. Buchanan):

That the Minister of National Health and Welfare modify the terms of Mr. Justice Hall's review and place it under the Inquiries Act so as to allow witnesses to be called, thereby assisting Mr. Justice Hall in the thorough study of this area of most critical interest to Canadians.

Eudore Allard

Social Credit

Mr. Eudore Allard (Rimouski):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 and ask the unanimous consent of the House to discuss a motion relating to a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

Given the fact that, according to a study of the Economic Council of Canada, 60 per cent of persons over 65 years of age and living alone are under the poverty line and that most of these people are women, 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):

That the House instruct the Minister of National Health and Welfare to take all necessary steps to increase old age pensions to meet the minimum standard of living as defined by the central government.
