Mr. Girve Fretz (Erie):
Madam Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. If Bill C-42 is passed without amendment to its monopoly provisions, serious harm will be done to organizations which provide meaningful and remunerative employment for the mentally retarded who have contracted with private business to hand deliver billings, an example of such organization being N-Tec in my riding. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Lisgar (Mr. Murta):
That this House urge the government to provide an example and a symbol to all Canadians, in the Year of the Handicapped, by excluding groups such as N-Tec from the monopoly provisions of the bill, thereby allowing members of such groups to have a sense of worth and dignity too often denied them.
