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.
Subtopic: METRIC CONVERSION
Sub-subtopic: IMPLEMENTATION OF METRIC SYSTEM-REQUEST COMMISSION BE ABOLISHED-MOTION UNDER S O. 43
