STATUS OF WOMEN

Pauline Jewett

New Democratic Party

Miss Pauline Jewett (New Westminster-Coquitlam):

Under the provisions of Standing Order 43, Mr. Speaker, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Broadview-Greenwood (Mr. Rae):

That this House expresses its stunned disbelief that the provincial premiers have insisted on having the subject "Employment Problems of Women" dropped from the agenda of the December 17-18 first ministers' conference and, in the spirit of its own tireless dedication to women's issues, calls upon the provincial premiers to reverse their decision and join the federal government in devoting at least a small portion of time to employment issues affecting women at the forthcoming first ministers' meeting.

PC

Robin Mark Richardson

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Robin Richardson (Beaches):

Mr. Speaker, 1 rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, to seek the unanimous consent of the House on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the serious situation in Iran and the plight of the U.S. hostages and the concern which 1 am sure we all feel about the momentous decisions facing President Carter, 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Erie (Mr. Fretz):

Thai this House call upon the people of Canada to pray for Divine Guidance for President Carter and the people of the United States in this hour of their need, and that as a symbol of our support of the American people in their determination not to yield to blackmail and in their demands for the safe return of the hostages, that this House authorize the ringing of the bells in the Peace Tower at twelve noon each and every day until the U.S. hostages in Iran are released.

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. The House, I know, will recognize an ingredient here involving spiritual guidance for Canadians. I would express very grave reservations about the use of this particular Standing Order to enter this area, and I am not prepared to put the motion at this time.

If the House wishes to seek an occasion to argue the case that I ought to extend the limits of Standing Order 43 for this purpose, I am prepared to entertain it. At the moment, however, I cannot say that a motion to enter into a spiritual area of this sort is in keeping with our previous practice.
