ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

RAILWAYS

PC

A. Daniel McKenzie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg-Assiniboine):

Madam Speaker, there have been five serious train derailments in the 60-mile Miami subdivision of the Canadian National Railroad in Manitoba during the past year alone, and two workers have been badly injured. Today trains are forced to travel at ten miles per hour rather than take the chance of running off the track. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Portage-Mar-quette (Mr. Mayer):

That this House demand that the Minister of Transport take immediate action to have the Miami subdivision made eligible now, not in 1983 as is currently planned, for the federal rail rehabilitation program before there is any loss of life or further injury.

BANK OF CANADA

NDP

David Orlikow

New Democratic Party

Mr. David Orlikow (Winnipeg North):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the latest drop of 4 per cent in Canada's GNP during the third quarter of 1981 and Statistics Canada's forecast that "things will get worse before they get better", and in view of the most recent increase in unemployment of 130,000 people, the highest in 30 years, and whereas the Bank of Canada Governor continues to support the inflationary high interest rate policies pursued by the government and the Bank of Canada, as illustrated in his speech yesterday by his ill-informed and uncaring statements such as "minimum wage rates keep people out of work", I move, seconded by the hon. member for Hamilton Mountain (Mr. Deans):

That this House immediately call for the resignation of Gerald Bouey, the Governor of the Bank of Canada.

Mr. Maurice Foster (Algoma):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the imminent passage of the constitutional resolution which will recognize and affirm, for the first time, aboriginal and treaty rights for native peoples in the Constitution of Canada, and in view of the many treaty and land claims under negotiation between Indian Bands and the native peoples across Canada with the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Develop-

ment, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Timmins-Chapleau (Mr. Chenier):

That this House of Commons encourages and recommends to the Minister of Indian Affairs that the federal government increase its efforts to reach early agreements on treaty and land claim negotiations with the native peoples of Canada on a fair and equitable basis.
