ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS


5.0. 43

Mr. Chas. L. Caccia@Davenport

Madam Speaker, I also rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity in connection with a proposal for which there may be a favourable attitude in this House, it has to do with the decision made yesterday by the United States Senate approving a bill requiring 80 power plants in the northeastern United States to shift from oil to coal, with the resulting considerable increase in acid rainfall. I move, therefore, seconded by the hon. member for Kingston and the Islands (Miss MacDonald):

That the Minister of State for the Environment renew his efforts in putting pressure on the U.S. government so as to prevent the implementation of this project which will seriously damage the environment north and south of the border.

Mr. Bill Yurko (Edmonton East):

Madam Speaker, Canada is importing $3 billion to $4 billion worth of oil and $1 billion worth of coal per year. Canada's unemployment rate is rising rapidly, and its balance of payments is rapidly deteriorating.

The pre-build section of the Alaska highway gas pipeline will provide 150,000 man-years of employment, a favourable balance of payments of $1 billion per year, and investment in

Canada of $1.6 billion with $360 million in Ontario and Quebec. Therefore, under Standing Order 43, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Hastings-Frontenac (Mr. Vankoughnet):

That the federal government immediately approve all Canadian aspects of the pre-build Alaska highway gas pipeline while concurrently continuing negotiations with Ihe United States of America for guarantees in regard to construction of the northern and Alaska sections of the gas line.

HISTORIC SITES

PC

Gary Michael Gurbin

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. M. Gurbin (Bruce-Grey):

Madam Speaker, 1 rise pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43. If Canadians are to understand and take pride in our country, we must learn to preserve and honour our history and the spirit that made this land.

In view of the fact that the historic sites branch of Parks Canada has postponed any decision about what is to become of the Right Hon. John Diefenbaker's home in Rockcliffe or whether or not to give official recognition to his birthplace in Neustadt, Ontario, and given the fact that as each day passes the possibility of saving these homes for future generations becomes more remote. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Richmond-South Delta (Mr. Siddon):

That this House instructs the Minister of the Environment: (l) to take immediate action on establishing both the Diefenbaker birthplace in Neustadt and his residence in Ottawa as national historic sites; and (2) to have a statue of the late Prime Minister commissioned and erected upon Parliament Hill.

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 a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

Yesterday, the Associated Press carried a story on the statement by a group of 40 catholic priests in El Salvador documenting the massacre there in May of 600 peasants by

June 26, 1980

Salvadoran troops and members of a far right paramilitary organization. About the same time, some of us in this House were being briefed by a delegation from the Guatemalan Democratic Front Against Repression about gross violations of human rights in their country.

In view of the extreme violence and repression which has become a fact of daily life in El Salvador and Guatemala, and the urgent representations of the Guatemalan Democratic Front to members of this House, and taking into account the hopeful revolution in Nicaragua against this spiral of violence, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg-Birds Hill (Mr. Blaikie):

That the Government of Canada give serious consideration to establishing a parliamentary fact-finding mission to go to Central America in the near future to investigate conditions there first-hand, so that the report of such a group can provide a better basis for reviewing and renewing our aid and other bilateral relations with the countries of this region.
