Mr. Lome Greenaway (Cariboo-Chilcotin):
Madam Speaker, yesterday in the Standing Committee on Indian Affairs and Northern Development members of this House were subjected to a litany of examples of the complete and utter abrogation of the government's obligations to the Cree and Inuit under the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement. Given the devastating effect that this abrogation has had on the health of the Cree, and specifically in light of the fact that tuberculosis is rampant in at least one Cree village, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Prince George-Bulkley Valley (Mr. McCuish):
That the Minister of National Health and Welfare admit her residual responsibility for natives as outlined in Chapter 955 of the Indian health regulations under the Indian Act, and not withdraw health and social services to the Cree as is presently scheduled for March 31, 1981, until all commitments under the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement are fulfilled by both governments involved.
