ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

ASSURANCE OF PROTECTION OF RIGHTS IN PROPOSED CHARTER-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

PC

Walter Franklin McLean

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Walter McLean (Waterloo):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In light of the statement yesterday by the government's own Advisory Council on the Status of Women that the proposed human rights charter does not adequately protect women from discrimination, and in light of the apparent muzzling of discussion on the constitution and women by the government's refusal of funds for the National Action Committee's special October 18 meeting of leaders of women's groups scheduled for Winnipeg, 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Vancouver Centre (Miss Carney):

That this House instructs the government to immediately assure all Canadian women that any proposed charter of rights will reflect recognition by the government of the need for protection of their rights.

PARLIAMENTARY RESTAURANT

PC

Vincent Martin Dantzer

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Vince Dantzer (Okanagan North):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 regarding a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Whereas there are 28 members of Parliament from the province of British Columbia in this House, whereas these members often welcome and entertain constituents on Parliament Hill, in view of the resolution now before this House which purports to guarantee that everyone has the right not to be subjected to any cruel and unusual treatment or punishment, and since the Parliamentary Restaurant does not offer wine produced in British Columbia, members from that province are subject to the cruel and unusual treatment or punishment of having to serve their

guests wine not produced in British Columbia, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Okanagan-Similkameen (Mr. King):

That this House strongly urge those responsible to put an end to this cruel and unusual treatment and allow superb British Columbia wines to be served under the auspices of the Parliamentary Restaurant.

GOVERNMENT OF CANADA

PC

A. Daniel McKenzie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg-Assiniboine):

Madam

Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Given the government's apparent obsession with the protection of human rights for Canadian citizens, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Saskatoon West (Mr. Hnatyshyn):

That the government cease the practice of illegally raising postal rates without reference to Parliament, that it stop governing by orders in council, and that it implement the recommendations of the Standing Joint Committee on Regulations and Other Statutory Instruments tabled in July, 1980, which would protect the rights of Canadians and strengthen the parliamentary system.
