ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

FOREIGN INVESTMENT REVIEW AGENCY

PC

William Henry (Bill) Domm

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Bill Domm (Peterborough):

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

Canadian General Electric has announced its intention to phase out the building wire and power cable operation at its Peterborough plant, a decision which would lead to the loss of some 300 jobs in Peterborough. Some of the employees who would lose their jobs have more than 40 years' experience at CGE.

In the light of a petition signed by 3,655 employees and friends, and because the company which has offered to buy the wire and cable equipment from CGE, Pirelli Cables Limited, is a foreign-controlled company, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Durham-Northumberland (Mr. Lawrence):

That the government, through the Foreign Investment Review Agency, stop the sale to Pirelli so that the jobs at Canadian General Electric in Peterborough might be safeguarded.

VETERANS AFFAIRS

PC

A. Daniel McKenzie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg-Assiniboine):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. The Minister of Veterans Affairs (Mr. MacDonald) has informed this House that veterans' pensions are being studied as part of a larger pension review by the Department of National Health

and Welfare. I would therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for St. Catharines (Mr. Reid):

That this House require that the Minister of Veterans Affairs bring in an interim report on veterans' pensions and that the minister assure the House that any Veterans Affairs legislation be separate from a Health and Welfare omnibus bill, and that the resultant pension increases be retroactive to the date of the introduction of Bill C-28 in the Thirty-first Parliament.

HUMAN RIGHTS

NDP

Robert Joseph Ogle

New Democratic Party

Mr. Bob Ogle (Saskatoon East):

Madam Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on the occasion of the fourth anniversary of the courageous struggles against apartheid which took place in the black township of Soweto near Johannesburg, South Africa.

In view of the fact that hundreds of schoolchildren were killed in the terrible repression which ensued, and in view of the South African government's continuing denial of basic human rights to its citizens, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Regina East (Mr. de Jong):

That this House express its support for all those struggling against the evil system of apartheid in Soweto and throughout South Africa; and, further, that this House unequivocally condemn the government of South Africa for its policies of repression.

POLITICAL PARTIES

PC

Howard Edward Crosby

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Howard Crosby (Halifax West):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. The executive of the New Democratic Party in Nova Scotia has expelled from membership Paul MacEwan, a member of the provincial

June 16, 1980

legislature for Cape Breton Nova, for expressing his opinion respecting a communist element in the New Democratic Party. I would therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Annapolis Valley-Hants (Mr. Nowlan):

That this House condemn the actions of the New Democratic Party for expelling from membership a duly elected representative of the people, without benefit of a fair trial, for exercising his right to freedom of speech.
