ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

INDIAN AFFAIRS

PC

Stanley Kenneth Schellenberger

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Stan Schellenberger (Wetaskiwin):

Madam Speaker, because of the urgency of immediately upgrading the standards at the Hobbema school in Alberta by transferring its control to the Indians themselves, and because the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development (Mr. Munro) promised last September to provide $96,000 to the bands to aid in that task, yet has now reneged on that promise, I move, under Standing Order 43, seconded by the hon. member for Erie (Mr. Fretz):

That the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development cure himself of his habit of making promises he cannot keep and immediately provide the Four Bands Reserve with the moneys promised.

NATIONAL PENSIONS CONFERENCE

SUGGESTED ATTENDANCE OF CNR AND CPR

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 both CNR and CPR have, for many years, failed to provide adequate increases to their pensioners so that they can even hope to cover a part of the ravages created by inflation, which is now in double-digit figures, and in view of the fact that concerns expressed by the Canadian Railways Employees Pension Association that the CNR may have manipulated figures to reduce its financial obligation to the pension fund by hundreds of millions of dollars, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Pembina (Mr. Elzinga):

That this House call upon the minister to request that both the CNR and CPR appear at the National Pensions Conference planned for the end of March to provide complete details and all relevant documents, to answer any charges and clear up all misunderstandings and, further, to indicate how in the future these corporations will meet their moral obligations in providing to their former employees more reasonable pension increases in the face of double-digit inflation.

HUMAN RIGHTS

ADVISORY COUNCIL ON STATUS OF MEN-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

Pat Carney

Progressive Conservative

Miss Pat Carney (Vancouver Centre):

Madam Speaker, I rise pursuant to Standing Order 43. As critic responsible for the status of men I deplore the continuing discrimination, particularly by this government, against the male minority, which does not enjoy rights granted to the female majority, which has its own advisory council and its own minister. Therefore, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Mississauga South (Mr. Blenkarn):

That this House instruct the government to establish an advisory council on the status of men reporting directly to Parliament and, further, since membership in the Advisory Council on the Status of Women is composed of women Liberals, that membership of the men's council be drawn from male members of the opposition parties.
