ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

OIL PRICING AGREEMENT-NEGOTIATIONS BETWEEN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND PROVINCE OF ALBERTA-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

PC

Claude Girvin (Girve) Fretz

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Girve Fretz (Erie):

Madam Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Given the fact that the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources (Mr. Lalonde) will meet tomorrow with his Alberta counterpart to try to end the oil pricing impasse, and given that this impasse has crippled the Canadian oil exploration industry and shipped millions of dollars to foreign producers, leaving us ever more dependent on fragile sources of supply, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Parry Sound-Muskoka (Mr. Darling):

That the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources bargain in good faith and avoid the temptation to make political points, and thereby bring sanity to the Canadian oil picture.

PC

Peter Elzinga

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Peter Elzinga (Pembina):

Madam Speaker, whereas the Treasury Board has made the pay increases for members of the RCMP retroactive to April 1, 1981, rather than to the promised January 1, recognizing this breach of faith by the federal government and recognizing the outstanding service members of the RCMP offer to the Canadian community, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Wetaskiwin (Mr. Schellenberger):

That this House direct the Treasury Board to live up to its commitment to the members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police by extending the retroactivity of their pay increases to January I, 1981.

PC

William James Kempling (Chief Opposition Whip; Whip of the Progressive Conservative Party)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Bill Kempling (Burlington):

Madam Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43 I wish to move a motion. In light of the brutal disregard for human rights displayed by the Iranian government against the Baha'i faith in Iran, and in view of the announced intention of the government of Iran to destroy all traces of the holiest Baha'i shrine and to desecrate its site, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Kingston and the Islands (Miss MacDonald):

That this House deplores the decision to desecrate the sacred shrine which three million Baha'i around the world consider the birthplace and the symbol of their faith, and that should the government of Iran continue its persecution, we urge that the United Nations Commission on Human Rights take up once again its investigation of Iranian policy toward the Baha'i community in Iran.

Leslie Gordon Benjamin

New Democratic Party

Mr. Les Benjamin (Regina West):

Madam Speaker, now that the Solicitor General (Mr. Kaplan) is here, maybe we can obtain the agreement of hon. members opposite under the provisions of Standing Order 43.

In July, 1980, members of the RCMP were promised that pay increases would begin on January 1, 1981, as they do in other Canadian police forces. Because the RCMP has no union to fight for decent wages and working conditions, last week the Treasury Board was able to double-cross and chisel the force, and announced a pay increase retroactive to April 1, rather than January 1, 1981. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Mission-Port Moody (Mr. Rose):

June 9, 1981

That since this Treasury Board decision has robbed each member of the force of $750 to $1,600 each, the Solicitor General and the President of the Treasury Board immediately make the recent pay award retroactive to January 1,1981.
