VETERANS AFFAIRS


5.0. 43


PC

A. Daniel McKenzie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg-Assiniboine):

Madam

Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Whereas the Veterans Administration in the United States processes pension claims, both new and appealed, within 90 days, and in Canada this same process takes up to 46 months, as stated in the Auditor General's report, and whereas the chairman of the Pension Commission has admitted that he is being hamstrung by the present veterans legislation, I move,

June 1, 1981

seconded by the hon. member for Nepean-Carleton (Mr. Baker):

That the Acting Minister of Veterans Affairs introduce immediately amendments to the veterans legislation to remedy this despicable four-year time lag in Canada and that he appear before the Public Accounts Committee which is dealing with his department tomorrow.

FISHERIES

PC

Thomas Edward Siddon

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Thomas Siddon (Richmond-South Delta):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Given the fact that the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans (Mr. LeBlanc) has failed to acknowledge the serious economic problems faced by the west coast fishing industry due to declining stock levels, excess fleet capacity, and haphazard management practices, together with the compounding impact on fishermen of the Liberal government's high interest rate policies, and given the fact that the government on Friday last rejected my motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43 calling for a special House order to authorize the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Forestry to visit the west coast during the month of June to investigate these serious problems firsthand, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Esquimalt-Saanich (Mr. Munro):

That this House instruct the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans to make an immediate statement on motions outlining the steps he will take to alleviate the threat of bankruptcy and vessel seizure faced by hundreds of west coast Fishermen to prevent a collapse of the west coast fishing industry.

SOCIAL SECURITY

NDP

Rodney Edward Murphy

New Democratic Party

Mr. Rod Murphy (Churchill):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that a native woman in my riding has received the ultimate form letter denying her a spouse's allowance, which letter did not explain why she was turned down, it was not dated, no name or signature was attached, no telephone number and no return address was given for the government office, and it was obviously designed not to allow space for this information,

Oral Questions

although she was asked to reply to the letter by the beginning of April, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Beaches (Mr. Young):

That the government review all its form letters to ensure that in addition to containing all necessary documentation, such as names and return addresses, that the reason for the refusal of the request is given and, also, that the manner of appealing the decision is explained.

HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES

PC

Albert Glen Cooper

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Albert Cooper (Peace River):

Madam Speaker, whereas the government is now considering legislation to move marijuana control from the Narcotics Act to the Food and Drugs Act, and whereas recent research indicates marijuana does have a number of serious physical side effects, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Cariboo-Chilcotin (Mr. Greenaway):

That the Minister of State and Minister of Communications in upcoming meetings with the Council of Education Ministers encourage them to co-operate with the federal government in an educational program designed to show Canada's youth both the hazards of marijuana use and the purposes of the proposed legislation.
