Mr. Raymond Savard (Verdun):

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 Minister of Employment and Immigration (Mr. Atkey) admitted last week, before the coalition of provincial organizations of handicapped, that the handicapped must face many difficulties in the areas of employment, transport, housing and recreation, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Saint-Leonard-Anjou (Miss Begin):

Thai the House ask the government to introduce positive and immediate measures to correct the situation.

OIL TANKER IN CANSO STRAIT DESTINED FOR ITALY-CALL FOR INVESTIGATION-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

Mr. Andy Hogan (Cape Breton-East Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, under Standing Order 43, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Yesterday afternoon, a 100,000-ton oil freighter called Grey Fighter left the Canso Strait area of Nova Scotia sailing for Italy with a cargo of oil. This oil freighter had entered light at Port Hawkesbury, on the Strait of Canso, on November 25. The word "light" at ports, I am

told, is a jargon word for "empty". As recently as yesterday we had been told-

CANADIAN WHEAT BOARD

LIB

Lloyd Axworthy

Liberal

Mr. Lloyd Axworthy (Winnipeg-Fort Garry):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In the interests of western farmers, I hope this proposal will receive the non-partisan, unanimous consent of the House.

In view of the fact that the Canadian Wheat Board is now making an adjustment payment to prairie farmers totalling some $145 million on grain delivered early in this crop year before the initial price was raised, in view of the fact that a good portion of the grain delivered at that time was delivered on a "cash deferred basis", whereby many farmers have elected deliberately and consciously to defer receiving payment for that grain until into the next taxation year, 1980, as an income and tax planning device provided for in the Canadian Wheat Board Act itself, and in view of the fact that much of the planning on the part of many farmers may be defeated by this payment coming unexpectedly in the last two or three weeks of the 1979 tax year, I move, seconded by the hon.

1782

November 28, 1979

member for Grand Falls-White Bay-Labrador (Mr. Romp-key):

That this House instructs the Minister of National Revenue to issue the appropriate order deeming that portion of the current CWB adjustment payment which relates to grain delivered on a "cash deferred basis" as income in 1980- as farmers had obviously intended and planned-and not income in 1979.
