Mr. Charles Mayer (Portage-Marquette):
Madam Speaker, with the latest increase of 9 cents per gallon in petroleum products, gasoline and heating oil prices have increased by as much as 60 cents a gallon in the last year and a half. Yet during the last election campaign the Minister of Finance (Mr. MacEachen), in newspaper advertisements, said "Vote Liberal and the price will stay down". Therefore I move the following motion, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, seconded by the hon. member for Crowfoot (Mr. Malone):
That this House condemn the Liberal government for the deceitful and dastardly way that it has disregarded its campaign promises to keep oil price increases below 18 cents a gallon.
