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.
