Mr. Marcel Ostiguy (Saint-Hyacinthe):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I seek the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, considering the dire straits in which the chicken industry is in Quebec and in all Canada.

Yesterday I received a copy of a telegram which the Quebec poultry producers' union sent to the right hon. Prime Minister (Mr. Clark) in which they urged him to order an immediate stop to any issue of supplementary import quotas to the United States, since the present inventories and physical production facilities are sufficient to meet the demand of the Canadian market. Besides, the Quebec Federation des producteurs de volailles, supported by the UPA, is worried about the excess production of chicken piling up in storage facilities in Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia. Therefore, 1 move:

That the government give instructions to have any supplementary imports of chicken from the United States stopped immediately, that the agreement on import quotas with the United States be re-negotiated to the level of egg import quotas, that the government submit the request of Canadian producers to GATT arbitration if the Americans disagree.

ELECTION PROMISE TO REDUCE CHEESE IMPORTS-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

LIB

Denis √Čthier

Liberal

Mr. Denis Ethier (Glengarry-Prescott-Russell):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under Standing Order 43. Due to the fact that this government has

been in office more than six months now, and that the dairy producers of this country are still awaiting the delivery of the election promise, namely, to reduce cheese imports by some 10 million pounds, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Essex-Windsor (Mr. Whelan):

That this government take immediate action to deliver this election promise, and if not that the Prime Minister make a public apology for deliberately misleading our Canadian dairy producers during the May 22 election campaign.

THE ADMINISTRATION

NDP

Mark Willson Rose

New Democratic Party

Mr. Mark Rose (Mission-Port Moody):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of recent press reports that two government ministers, the Minister of State for Small Businesses and Industry (Mr. Huntington) and the Minister of Finance (Mr. Crosbie), have stated they found complying with government conflict of interest regulations regarding making public, or blind-trusting, their personal financial affairs so onerous as to cause them to question their commitment to public life, and since the Minister of Finance and the President of the Treasury Board (Mr. Stevens) are seeking to be exempted from the regulations, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That in view of their contempt of Parliament, the Minister of Finance and the President of the Treasury Board be suspended from their ministerial posts, without pay, until they comply with the regulations.

William Warren Allmand

Liberal

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

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a

December 6, 1979

matter of pressing and urgent necessity. Whereas on December 5, lawyers for the Council of Yukon Indians sent a telex to the Minister of Justice alleging that the new powers recently conferred by the government on the Yukon territory were unconstitutional and illegal, and whereas the Council for Yukon Indians have requested the Minister of Justice to direct a reference to the Supreme Court of Canada under section 55 of the Supreme Court Act to determine the constitutionality of these changes, I move:

That this House direct the government to make such a reference to the Supreme Court as quickly as possible so that these legal questions can be settled in order to facilitate land claims negotiations and planning for the pipeline in the Yukon.
