Mr. Dave Nickerson (Western Arctic):
Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Whereas in a unanimous decision last Friday the Alberta Court of Appeal ruled that the federal government does not have the authority to tax exports of gas owned by a province, therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Hamilton-Wentworth (Mr. Scott):
That the Minister of Justice be obliged to apologize for the ill advice he has tendered to the Crown, and that the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources now withdraw his destructive national energy policy and replace it with a system which is both equitable and constitutional.
