Madam Speaker:

I take it the House wants to express sentiments toward this community, but I do not think this is a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43.

VISIT OF UNITED STATES PRESIDENT REAGAN-MOTION UNDER

PC

William J. Yurko

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Bill Yurko (Edmonton East):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on an important matter.

Every member in this House is pleased that the President of the United States of America is visiting Canada next week and will be addressing jointly members of this House and the Senate on March 11. Therefore, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Kingston and the Islands (Miss MacDonald):

That this House, through the unanimous passage of this motion, welcome President Reagan and wish him and his government well, and furthermore encourage him to meet with world leaders, particularly President Brezhnev, in the very near future to initiate negotiations for arresting aggression wherever it occurs in the world; to renew detente and establish a rationale for limiting the world's arms race and to reaffirm world peace and fundamental human rights as the first priority of international relations.

COMBINES

PC

Stan Darling

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Stan Darling (Parry Sound-Muskoka):

Madam Speaker, I rise on a matter of some urgency under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In light of the fact that after eight years of investigation the government plans to hold a public inquiry into alleged price fixing by major oil companies, the timing of which so conveniently and so transparently shifts public focus and blame away from the government over its oil price levy earlier this week, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Durham-Northumberland (Mr. Lawrence):

That the government be condemned for not instructing that appropriate charges be laid against any oil companies found to have contravened any existing laws of Canada and that the minister make a statement on motions as to why prosecutions have not been instituted.

ASTRA TRUST

NDP

Bob Rae

New Democratic Party

Mr. Bob Rae (Broadview-Greenwood):

Madam Speaker, I rise to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Whereas eight people were charged yesterday with conspiracy to defraud the public of $35 million in the collapse of Astra Trust and associated companies; and whereas the collapse of Astra was the first collapse of a federally-chartered financial institution since the depression; and whereas the justice committee of the Ontario legislature has determined that officials of Astra used political influence to gain their federal charter, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Hamilton Mountain (Mr. Deans):

That the federal government set up a public inquiry to determine why Astra received a federal charter, how it operated, why it collapsed, who was responsible, what compensation should be paid to its victims, and ways of ensuring such a collapse is not repeated.
