Mr. Otto Jelinek (Halton):
Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. It is crystal clear that the November 12 budget is having a devastating effect on all sectors of our economy as witnessed by the outcry from virtually every responsible business and consumer organization in Canada, the latest two being the Canadian Institute for Economic Policy, headed by former Liberal finance minister, Walter Gordon, and the Economic Council of Canada. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Yukon (Mr. Nielsen):
That this House condemn the government for its budgetary policy, as well as the Minister of Finance for imposing such financial chaos on all Canadians, and further that this House do not adjourn for Christmas until such time as the Minister of Finance introduces new, positive and realistic budgetary measures.
