Mr. Dave Nickerson (Western Arctic):
Madam Speaker, I wish to introduce a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Whereas it would appear that the United States is now having second thoughts about the Alaska gas pipeline, I move the following motion, seconded by the hon. member for Yukon (Mr. Nielsen):
That this House require the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources to make a statement on motions explaining his failure to obtain the so-called ironclad guarantees of pipeline construction from the new American administration.
Sub-subtopic: ALASKA GAS PIPELINE-UNITED STATES GUARANTEES- MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
