ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

THE ECONOMY

PC

Donald Alex Blenkarn

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Don Blenkarn (Mississauga South):

Madam Speaker, I rise to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Statistics Canada has confirmed what everybody, other than those in the ivory tower who advise the Minister of Finance (Mr. MacEachen), already knew, that this country is in a mammoth recession. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Etobicoke Centre (Mr. Wilson):

That the Prime Minister direct the Minister of Finance to withdraw the budget immediately and change the economic direction of the country, discharge from the public service his ivory tower dreamers, and produce a new budget to get this country back on the rails before this House recesses for Christmas.

DEMAND THAT NEW BUDGET BE INTRODUCED-MOTION UNDER

PC

Vincent Martin Dantzer

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Vince Dantzer (Okanagan North):

Madam Speaker, I rise to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Today we learn that the government's bureaucracy has finally got the message that the country is headed for economic disaster. Hopefully the Minister of Finance (Mr. MacEachen) has Finally got the message that his budget is counterproductive and obsolete. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Esquimalt-Saanich (Mr. Munro):

That this House demand from this government a new budget which will provide for the needs of ordinary Canadians, that is, jobs, homes, and protection against high interest rates and inflation.

EMPLOYMENT

NDP

Pauline Jewett

New Democratic Party

Miss Pauline Jewett (New Westminster-Coquitlam):

Madam Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Whereas according to Statistics Canada, the unemployment rate in Quebec has shown a dramatic increase of 44 per cent compared to previous months, and whereas Quebec alone has 36 per cent of the unemployed in Canada, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Beaches (Mr. Young):

That the House ask the government to set up special programs in order to provide assistance in areas most seriously affected in Quebec.

THE ADMINISTRATION

PC

Elmer MacIntosh MacKay

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Elmer M. MacKay (Central Nova):

Madam Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43. The Minister of Finance (Mr. MacEachen), observing the collapse of his budget and the onset of the worst economic climate in this country for decades, apparently seems to have copped out of the House of Commons question period. He is unavailable today, and his office is unwilling to disclose his whereabouts for tomorrow. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Elgin (Mr. Wise):

That the government arrange to provide this academic expatriate and economic illiterate with an on-the-job training program to overcome the fact that his budget was prepared by his bureaucrats without very much input or understanding by the minister, and at least arrange to have him appear regularly in the House of Commons for questioning about the budget's disastrous, ongoing effects on Canadians.
