ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

THE CONSTITUTION

PC

Benno Friesen

Progressive Conservative

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

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that the former B.C. Liberal leader has now firmly and publicly rejected the Liberal government's constitutional proposal when he said, "The current approach to patriation is unilateral partisan confrontation, without any regional consensus and making quite improper use of vestigial colonial ties" and in view of the news report in British Columbia indicating that the Liberal government feels that Dave Barrett's support is more important than Gordon Gibson's, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Vancouver Centre (Miss Carney):

That the Minister of Justice make a statement on motions indicating whether the Liberal government has now rejected all western Liberal Party leaders and that the Prime Minister indicate in the same way whether or not he values western NDP support more than western Liberal support.

REGIONAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

PC

Robert Alfred Corbett

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Bob Corbett (Fundy-Royal):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Due to the fact that the ministers responsible for the distribution of government funding for programs such as the manufacturing tax incentive program and the Canada community development program refuse to recognize that all citizens of New Brunswick should be equal rather than just those in constituencies represented by Liberals, I move, seconded by the hon. member for York-Sunbury (Mr. Howie):

That the political minister responsible for New Brunswick, the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, intercede with his cabinet colleagues and advise them that New Brunswickers living in ridings represented by Conservatives are in fact not second-class citizens.

NDP

Lorne Edmund Nystrom

New Democratic Party

Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):

Madam Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion of pressing and urgent necessity.

Since the CBC dispute has been dragging on far too long, and since this intolerable situation is due to the management's refusal to make reasonable offers, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg-Birds Hill (Mr. Blaikie):

That the federal government take all necessary steps to urge the CBC management to bargain in good faith and be in a position to make serious proposals.

Thomas Michael McMillan

Progressive Conservative

Mr. McMillan:

-largely on a promise to keep down consumer energy prices. In view of the fact that since then the price of regular and unleaded gasoline in the Atlantic provinces has soared by about 41 cents a gallon, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Malpeque (Mr. Gass):

That this House condemns the government for breaking its major election promise, and in particular for not introducing an energy tax credit to cushion the effects of those increases on low and middle-income Canadians.
