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.
