ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

THE COMMONWEALTH

PC

Douglas Roche

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Douglas Roche (Edmonton South):

Madam Speaker, today marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Commonwealth, a unique association of 44 countries of different racial, cultural, and economic backgrounds. At a time when the international community is engulfed in a crisis of mistrust and inaction, the Commonwealth has the facility to bring diverse nations together in harmony and good will. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Kingston and the Islands (Miss MacDonald):

That Canada renew its support of the aims and objectives of the Commonwealth, particularly the dedication of the Commonwealth to upholding human rights, opposing racial discrimination, and resolving the world economic crisis through measures to close the rich-poor gap in the world.

FISHERIES

PC

Thomas Edward Siddon

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Thomas Siddon (Richmond-South Delta):

Madam Speaker, in view of the fact that the lack of a Canada-United States fishing treaty will lead to overfishing and disorder, 1 move, under the provisions of Standing Order 43 and seconded by the hon. member for Central Nova (Mr. MacKay):

That this House views with regret and grave concern the decision of the President of the United States to withdraw from the United States Senate that part of the east coast fisheries and boundaries treaty dealing with fisheries management and quotas, a decision which poses a serious threat to the scallop and groundfish resources off Georges Bank.

STATUS OF WOMEN

PC

Walter Franklin McLean

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Walter McLean (Waterloo):

Madam Speaker, news reports today confirm that the minister responsible for the status of women has been unable to influence cabinet to initiate an independent review of the Advisory Council on the Status of Women. He is reportedly getting pretty tired of dealing with women lobbying for changes in the Constitution and for changes to restore integrity to the advisory council. In dismissing these representations, the minister has also cynically observed that the women's movement, for which he is supposed to be responsible, is easily manipulated. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Kingston and the Islands (Miss MacDonald):

That this House calls upon the Prime Minister to relieve the present minister responsible for the status of women from his tiresome duties and replace him with a person who will have the confidence and respect of women and of cabinet.

EXTERNAL AFFAIRS

Pauline Jewett

New Democratic Party

Miss Pauline Jewett (New Westminster-Coquitlam):

Madam Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to Standing Order 43. Since, on the eve of his visit to Canada, United States President Ronald Reagan has unilaterally scuttled the east coast fisheries treaty, on top of his approval of $4 million in new financing for the Garrison diversion project, his backing off on commitments given regarding the Alaska natural gas pipeline and his total indifference to the problems of acid rain, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Burnaby (Mr. Robinson):

That this House condemn these hostile and negative actions by the United States government and, furthermore, that this House send a telegram to President Reagan telling him that if this is an indication of his goal of a "close

March 9, 198 !

and co-operative relationship with Canada", he might as well turn his plane around and stay in Washington.
