Mr. Jim Hawkes (Calgary West):
Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that senior citizens and other pensioners are the hardest hit by the dishonest campaign promises of the Liberal government and its 12 oil price increases in 15 months, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg-Assiniboine (Mr. McKenzie):
That this House provide pensioners with financial help that will protect them from all the Liberal tax increases that exceed 18 cents a gallon for gasoline and home heating fuel; reimbursement of 40 cents a gallon today but probably $4 tomorrow.
