HUMAN RIGHTS

PC

Flora Isabel MacDonald

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Flora MacDonald (Kingston and the Islands):

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

Given the recent arrest and detention of Dr. C. M. Kao, General Secretary of the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan, who, along with other church officials, has been placed in solitary confinement without public trial, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Esquimalt-Saanich (Mr. Munro):

That the Government of Canada express its concern about this violation of human rights-the summary arrest and subsequent solitary confinement of Dr. C. M. Kao, General Secretary of the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan-to all Canadian companies transacting business in Taiwan so that they, in turn, may

impress upon their trading partners in Taiwan the urgency that Canadians feel for the release of these persons; and that a similar concern be conveyed to those governments which still maintain diplomatic ties with Taiwan, so that Canada's views can be brought directly to the attention of the government of Taiwan.

PENSIONS

NDP

Stanley Howard Knowles (N.D.P. House Leader)

New Democratic Party

Hon. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Madam Speaker, the subject matter of this motion grows more urgent as time goes on, and I hope this is the day the House will agree to it. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for New Westminster-Coquitlam (Miss Jewett):

That this House calls on the government to recognize the contribution that women in their homes make to our economy, and as a minimum to recognize this contribution by establishing pension equality, including the equivalent of the Canada Pension Plan for women whose work is in their homes, equal pension rights for all women between the ages of 60 and 65 regardless of marital status, increasing the pensions paid to widows under various government plans to at least 75 per cent, and the continuing payment of pensions granted to widows regardless of any subsequent change in marital status.

ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS

PC

Frank Oberle

Progressive Conservative

Mr. F. Oberle (Prince George-Peace River):

Madam Speaker, I rise on a question of urgent and pressing necessity regarding the proposal of the Aluminum Company of Canada to complete its industrial power generating capacity in British Columbia under an agreement and licence that was issued 30 years ago. I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Prince George-Bulkley Valley (Mr. McCuish):

That the government be required to exercise its various jurisdictions to ensure that the proposed Kemano II project is examined fully in light of standards which are used currently to evaluate such schemes, rather than those which were

June 9, 1980

in place 30 years ago, and that a full public inquiry be ordered to examine the clear federal interests in connection with the Kemano II proposal.
