AIRPORTS

PC

James Aloysius McGrath

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Janies A. McGrath (St. John's East):

Madam Speaker, I wish to move, under Standing Order 43, a motion which is of pressing and urgent necessity.

As the Ministry of Transport is now in the process of dismantling the radar approach system at St. John's airport, which would constitute in certain circumstances a hazard to the travelling public, and indeed would lower the operational capacity of the airport, with the unanimous consent of the House I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Yukon (Mr. Nielsen):

That this House directs the Minister of Transport to issue the necessary directive in order to ensure that the precision approach radar system at St. John's airport continues to operate until the instrument landing system has been installed and is operative.

PC

Walter Gilbert Dinsdale

Progressive Conservative

Hon. W. G. Dinsdale (Brandon-Souris):

Madam Speaker, I wish to move, under Standing Order 43, a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. It arises from the renewed freeze of the Postmaster General (Mr. Ouellet) on the extension of letter carrier service to new suburbs in Canada's growing cities.

In view of the loss of jobs resulting from the freeze, with the consequent increase in unemployment insurance payments, and the Postmaster General's announcement that he is planning a substantial increase in postal rates, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Vancouver South (Mr. Fraser):

That the Postmaster General end forthwith the freeze on letter carrier service, thereby providing job opportunities at a time of continuing high unemployment, and the traditional door to door delivery service which will ensure the quality of service necessary for the survival of Canada Post.

Peter Ittinuar

New Democratic Party

Mr. Peter Ittinuar (Nunatsiaq):

Madam Speaker, I, too, rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the fact that the native training opportunities announced by the Minister of Employment and Immigration (Mr. Axworthy) on Monday will only help those who wish to work in large resource development projects or in large urban centres, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Skeena (Mr. Fulton):

That this training program be expanded to provide substantial opportunities for native people to work in all sectors of the economy, and to include training which will help native people develop their own opportunities within their own communities.

NATIONAL DEFENCE

PC

Thomas Charles Cossitt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds-Grenville):

Madam Speaker, I rise concerning Admiral Robert Falls, former chief of the armed forces general staff and recently appointed Canadian NATO representative in Brussels, and the fact, as outlined in a National Defence telex which I have in my possession, that the government selected 30 potential Brussels residences for him, retained-presumably by option-15 for his consideration, subsequently on his instructions selected 8 Avenue de Fuji,

June 4, 1980

which he now occupies at a rental cost to the Canadian taxpayer of $8,200 per month, or almost $100,000 per year on a reported nine-year lease, with possible escalation clauses. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Central Nova (Mr. MacKay):

That this House strongly condemns the government, especially at a time when Canadians suffer from high mortgages and high rentals, for permitting Admiral Falls to indulge lavishly in apparent lust for luxurious living beyond the bounds of common sense, and demands a government statement on this opulent, elaborate self-indulgence which makes a literal lie of the government's pious, pompous urging of restraint.
