ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

THE ENVIRONMENT

PC

Thomas Michael McMillan

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Tom McMillan (Hillsborough):

Madam Speaker, the incompetent and sluggish way the federal government handled a comparatively minor oil spill this past year from the vessel Edgar Jourdain at Hall Beach in the Arctic demonstrates the government's complete inability to respond effectively to any kind of oil spill in Canadian waters, much less a major one. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Bow River (Mr. Taylor):

That this House calls upon the government to launch a full public inquiry into the Edgar Jourdain incident with a view to overhauling Canada's oil spill clean-up capabilities.

BANKS AND BANKING

PC

Constantine George (Gus) Mitges

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Gus Mitges (Grey-Simcoe):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. The major chartered banks have stated publicly that they have increased funds for the Small Business Development Bond program and one bank has specified that it has increased the fund to $650 million, but as yet there is no evidence that the banks have increased the availability of this money to our farmers and small businesses which are on the verge of bankruptcy. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg-Assiniboine (Mr. McKenzie):

That this House directs the Minister of State for Small Businesses and Tourism to report on the meeting federal officials were scheduled to have with the chartered banks earlier this week, and that he ensure on an ongoing basis the banks honour the commitment to process bond applications immediately in order

to prevent any further foreclosures in the hard-pressed farming and small business industries.

SUPPORT FOR TREATMENT OF EPIDERMOLYSIS BULLOSA-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

Otto John Jelinek

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Otto Jelinek (Halton):

Madam Speaker, on December 1, officials of the Department of National Health and Welfare met with Mr. Pavel Kozak and encouraged him to continue his efforts to establish relations with Canadian physicians in his treatment of epidermolysis bullosa. In view of the fact that this acceptance brings Mr. Kozak's treatment one step closer to being made available to Canadians in Canada, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Portage-Marquette (Mr. Mayer):

That this House recognize and support Mr. Kozak in his efforts to make this treatment for epidermolysis bullosa accessible to scores of Canadians who suffer from this disorder.

THE NATIONAL ANTHEM

LIB

Henri Tousignant

Liberal

Mr. Henri Tousignant (Temiscamingue):

Madam Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43.

Whereas more often than not, the words and actions of all politicians are analysed, dissected, and severely and sometimes unfairly criticized by some journalists who behave like blood-

December 3, 1981

thirsty predators, I therefore move, seconded by the member for Gatineau (Mr. Cousineau):

That the House take this opportunity to repay these people in kind and censure those who cannot be bothered to rise and stand at attention as a sign of respect when the national anthem is sung, as was the case yesterday in this House, and as happens elsewhere on other occasions, in the hope that they will accept this as constructive criticism, just as a politician must accept criticism that is all too often unfair or unjustified.
