ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

CROSS-COUNTRY MARATHON OF TERRY FOX STRIKING OF STAMP IN COMMEMORATION-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

PC

John Kushner

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John Kushner (Calgary East):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Terry Fox, through his "Marathon of Hope", has joined the ranks of our oustanding Canadian heroes in the fight against cancer. To those people suffering from this dreaded disease in Canada and all over the world, it is Terry Fox who has given them hope through his courage and determination. Most of us have lost someone dear to cancer, just as I lost my dad. Terry Fox has given special pride to Canadians and has touched the hearts of us all.

In recognition of Terry Fox and the "Marathon of Hope" in the fight against cancer, I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. Catharines (Mr. Reid):

That this House extend to Terry Fox hearty congratulations and thanks on behalf of all Canadians, and furthermore, that the government strike a suitable stamp to commemorate Terry Fox and the "Marathon of Hope".

GOVERNMENT ADMINISTRATION

PC

Thomas Michael McMillan

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Tom McMillan (Hillsborough):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that the Government of Canada has lacked a functioning Minister of the Environment for several months now as the nominal incumbent devotes all his time to constitutional matters, I

move, seconded by the hon. member for Esquimalt-Saanich (Mr. Munro):

That this House urge the Prime Minister to appoint a new Minister of the Environment who can be counted on to deal full time with Canada's serious environmental problems, such as acid rain.

POST OFFICE

PC

Gordon Edward Taylor

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Gordon Taylor (Bow River):

Madam Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the authority of Standing Order 43. Whereas the people of Alberta are completely disgusted with the way the Canada Post Office is operating, if indeed it can be called an operation; whereas people are paying dearly for damaged parcels and lost letters totalling thousands of dollars; whereas it takes days, from nine to 17 days, for a letter to go from Edmonton to Strathmore, with most of that time being consumed in the Calgary regional post office, and 21 days for a letter to go from Humboldt, Saskatchewan to Strathmore, Alberta-it only takes eight hours to drive this distance; whereas large companies are completely disgusted with the postal service and are using alternative methods of mail delivery, which hurts the smaller post offices which are doing a good job locally and denies the Post Office badly needed revenue; and whereas the postal service is now viewed by many Canadians as an inept, bungling department of national disgrace; therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Calgary East (Mr. Kushner):

That the House of Commons urge the government to conduct a full scale inquiry for the purpose of pinpointing the reasons for the poor postal service in Canada, ascertaining who or what is responsible for the damaged parcels and thefts, and recommending the changes necessary to restore to Canada reasonable postal service.

NDP

John Edward Broadbent

New Democratic Party

Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 and ask for the unanimous consent of the House to discuss a motion relating to a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

Given the fact that the government has refused to negotiate in good faith with the translators and interpreters working for the federal public service by rejecting the recommendations of the conciliation board, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg-Birds Hill (Mr. Blaikie):

That the House request the government to accept as soon as possible the recommendations of the conciliation board, including the principles of indexation and maternity leave.
