ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

THE CONSTITUTION

PC

Benno Friesen

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Benno Friesen (Surrey-White Rock-North Delta):

Madam Speaker, I rise according to the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau) admitted in his television performance a week ago that his original constitutional proposals included the right of free movement of goods and services, and in view of the fact that such rights would declare as unconstitutional such policies as prejudicial freight rates and a quota system, which prevent large-scale western industrialization, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Fraser Valley West (Mr. Wenman):

That the Prime Minister at his news conference today or in a statement on motions explain why he wants to lock the country into today's industrial pattern and prevent natural and well-deserved industrialization of the west.

RESCISSION OF RIGHT TO WORK PROVISIONS-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

Thomas Edward Siddon

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Thomas Siddon (Richmond-South Delta):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to put a motion of urgent and pressing importance. In view of the mobility provisions described in section 6 of the government's proposed charter of rights which would guarantee the right to work to any Canadian citizen anywhere in Canada, and recognizing that such federal intervention would clearly frustrate the present power of provincial governments to enact provincial labour laws which guarantee and protect the right of free association accorded to trade unions, I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Prince George-Bulkley Valley (Mr. McCuish):

That the government be directed to rescind its proposed right-to-work legislation, which would clearly supersede the right of every province to pass provincial labour laws which are, in fact, designed to protect the interests of the labour force and labour unions operating within each province.

ENTRENCHMENT OF RIGHTS OF "THREATENED SPECIES"- MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

NDP

Bob Rae

New Democratic Party

Mr. Bob Rae (Broadview-Greenwood):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Whereas Canadians living in Ontario have been subjected to a twin onslaught of advertisements, one telling them to "preserve it, conserve it"-and presumably to vote Conservative-and the other a series of Trojan beavers, geese and clipperships-and presumably to vote Liberal-I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg-Birds Hill (Mr. Blaikie):

That this House urge the entrenchment of the rights of two apparently threatened species, the non-Conservative Ontarian and the non-Liberal national symbol.

PARLIAMENT HILL

PC

Robert Lloyd Wenman

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Bob Wenman (Fraser Valley West):

Madam Speaker, I rise pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43. In keeping with the spirit of Thanksgiving and recognizing Canada's tremendous contribution in alleviating human suffering in Southeast Asia, and in particular the willingness of the people of Canada to sponsor and give opportunity to 60,000 homeless refugees, I move, on behalf of the refugees still in transit camps awaiting passage to Canada, seconded by the hon. member for Laurier (Mr. Berger):

That the House of Commons accept for public display in some suitable location, such as the Library of Parliament, a beautiful hand-made replica of one of the many small boats that carried thousands of Vietnamese to freedom, a

replica made in a refugee camp and given as a gesture of gratitude to the people of Canada.
