Mr. Eymard Corbin (Madawaska-Victoria):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, 1 ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion dealing with an urgent matter of pressing necessity.

Considering that the Progressive Conservative government and the Minister of Employment and Immigration (Mr. Atkey) decided, according to his press release dated June 8, to order the promulgation of the last clauses of Bill C-14 on unemployment insurance so that they would be implemented on July 1, 1979, clauses which have an especially adverse effect on seasonal workers in northwest New Brunswick, contrary to what had been expected, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Westmorland-Kent (Mr. LeBlanc):

That the Minister of Employment and Immigration refrain from politicking at the expense of poor workers especially in the economic region of Madawaska, that he immediately take the required steps of which he is well aware to correct that serious social unfairness and grant to those workers the same advantages as those of the neighbouring constituency of Restigouche or Kent, for example, and in future when answering in the House that he state the whole truth in its real context, in accordance with his oath of office and with a view to living up to the principle of ministerial responsibility towards Parliament and the Canadian workers.

Hon. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, this is a motion under Standing Order 43 to which I feel the government simply cannot say no. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Oshawa (Mr. Broadbent):

That this House urges the Minister of Veterans Affairs to introduce this week, without fail, his promised legislation to amend the statutes relating to veterans, their families and their survivors, in the knowledge that this House is prepared to deal with such legislation without delay.

AIRPORTS

LIB

Edward C. Lumley

Liberal

Mr. Ed Lumley (Stormont-Dundas):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I seek the unanimous consent of the House on a motion of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the fact that Canadian-owned car rental companies are already discriminated against by the tendering policies of Transport Canada in favour of international franchises, and in view of the fact that the department has just awarded a contract to one of these foreign-based franchises, even though their bid was opened a full two hours after the official closing date and after all the other tenders were made public, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Vancouver Centre (Mr. Phillips):

That the Minister of Transport reject this mockery of government tendering procedures and proceed to award the car rental contract at the Winnipeg airport to a Canadian-owned franchise, Holiday Rent-A-Car Ltd., which made the best offer under the terms of the tender procedure.

INDIAN AFFAIRS

LIB

William Warren Allmand

Liberal

Hon. Warren Allmand (Notre-Dame-de-Grace):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to move a motion under Standing Order 43. Whereas the Federation of Saskatchewan Indians, the Saskatchewan government and the federal government all agreed in 1977 to a formula for settling outstanding land entitlement claims under treaty, and whereas on November 27 the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development (Mr. Epp) unilaterally declared that he no longer recognized the said formula-which has shocked and dismayed the Saskatchewan Indians-I move:

That this House condemn the minister for his statement in question period on November 27 and ask him to reconsider the answer that he gave on that occasion.
