INDUSTRY

PC

Albert Glen Cooper

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Albert Cooper (Peace River):

Madam Speaker, I rise on a matter urgent to the entire newspaper industry of Canada. Whereas this industry receives less than 7 per cent of Canada's newsprint production, the rest being exported, and whereas a number of pulp and paper mills are threatened with strikes, which will severely reduce newsprint supplies, and in view of the proposed adversiting tax changes for newspapers instigated by the government, which will impose severe hardships on the industry, and which have been described by

Patrick O'Callighan as "Unprecedented attempts to intrude into the traditional freedom of the press", I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bow River (Mr. Taylor):

That this House request the merciless Minister of Finance to cease his Big Mac attack on the newspaper industry, that the government encourage the mills to avoid any strikes, and encourage these mills to allocate a further 2 per cent of their production to Canada, in order that Canadians may continue to read such earth-shaking events as the Prime Minister's infamous sheik-yer-bootie two-step hustle, or the NDP Leader's enjoyment of Cuban cigars, plus the profound political insight provided daily by columnists such as Allan Fotheringham.

TRANSPORT

PC

Ronald Alexander Stewart

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ron Stewart (Simcoe South):

Madam Speaker, I rise under Standing Order 43. There is an omission which is inconveniencing thousands of residents along the west shore of Lake Simcoe who regularly commute from Barrie to Toronto. Present service is inadequate, and surveys taken indicate there is both commuter demand and potential. The president of VIA Rail has stated that provinces should contract with VIA Rail to "run trains where local interests feel they should go". Residents of Simcoe South are caught between conflicting jurisdictions, VIA Rail and GO, neither of which presently satisfy popular demand. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Simcoe North (Mr. Lewis):

That the Minister of Transport use his good offices with VIA Rail and GO (Ontario) to expedite a contract or a swap of passenger runs which will result in improved commuter service and passenger profits for the rail carrier.
