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.
