ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

METRIC CONVERSION

PC

Thomas Gordon Towers

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Gordon Towers (Red Deer):

Madam Speaker, 1 rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to place before this House a matter of urgent and pressing importance. Due to the extreme antipathy of more and more Canadians toward the government's method, to date, of implementing the metric system, 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Wetaskiwin (Mr. Schellenberger):

That the government, if nothing else, abolish the Metric Commission and enter into a voluntary system, supported by Industry, Trade and Commerce, if necessary, thereby restoring the faith of a large number of Canadians in the democratic system of government, not to mention their rights.

AGRICULTURE

PC

Douglas Charles Neil

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Doug Neil (Moose Jaw):

Madam Speaker, 1 rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the uncertainty about the future of the Canadian government elevator at Moose Jaw and the effect this has on employees, and in view of the importance of this facility to the grain handling and transportation system, 1 would move, seconded by the hon. member for Wetaskiwin (Mr. Schellenberger):

That the Minister of Agriculture give a firm commitment that the said terminal will remain in service as an integral part of the grain handling and transportation system, and under no circumstances will he consider mothballing the facility.

NATIONAL REVENUE

PC

T.A. Bud Bradley

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Bud Bradley (Haldimand-Norfolk):

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

In view of the fact that tobacco exports exceed $1 billion annually, and that the tobacco industry suffered disastrous setbacks last year because of blue mould, and considering that tobacco farmers are extensive users of petroleum products in greenhouse operations, in the field, planting, cultivating, spraying and irrigating, as well as in kiln-curing of the leaves, 1 would move, seconded by the hon. member for Oxford (Mr. Halliday):

That in order to ensure the viability of the industry in Canada, the government take steps to exempt tobacco farmers from the recent tax increase on petroleum products for the 1980 crop year.

NDP

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

New Democratic Party

Hon. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Madam Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, and seconded by the hon. member for Vancouver East (Mrs. Mitchell), I move:

That this House notes that today in Copenhagen, Canada is signing the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women, and this House therefore calls on the government to take affirmative action to establish equality for women in all phases of our economy, in employment opportunities, access to adequate training and upgrading, the provision of adequate daycare facilities, equal pay for work of equal value, a

guaranteed level of income for women below pension age, and equality between men and women in all pension plans.
