Albert Glen Cooper

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Cooper:

-and whereas the result of this will be an increased federal deficit because many businesses will no longer pay taxes as the result of having no profits, I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Edmonton East (Mr. Yurko):

That the Minister of Finance immediately introduce a new budget which will allow our Canadian entrepreneurs to have a taxable income once again.

Neil Young (Whip of the N.D.P.)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Neil Young (Beaches):

Madam Speaker, I, too, rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the precedent established by Environment Canada of providing financial and technical assistance to public interest groups to argue against the proposed Hyde Park clean-up agreement in U.S. courts, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Hamilton Mountain (Mr. Deans):

That this House instruct the Minister of the Environment to provide financial and technical assistance to public advocacy groups, to help them at hearings to begin in February next year to oppose SCA Services' application to expand the number and volume of chemicals they are permitted to discharge into the Niagara River.

THE BUDGET

LIB

Alexandre Cyr

Liberal

Mr. Alexandre Cyr (Gaspe):

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

Hundreds of Canadians who had concluded sales contracts for property, boats or businesses, with a view to taking advantage of income-averaging annuities in order to defer capital gains over the next few years, which is both fair and lawful and would have provided fishermen and farmers with sufficient funds to provide for themselves and their families during retirement, can no longer do so since the new budget was brought down on November 12. These people who have spent a lifetime saving for their retirement have now become the victims of the budget and its retroactive measures. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Bonaventure-Iles-de-la-Madeleine (Mr. Bujold):

That the House ask the Minister of Finance (Mr. MacEachen) to allow the legislation applying before November 12, 1981, to remain applicable, at least in the case of individuals who entered into contracts that were legal at the time, such as commercial fishermen and farmers who did so in order to purchase income-averaging annuities.

EXTERNAL AFFAIRS

PC

Charles Joseph Clark (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. Joe Clark (Leader of the Opposition):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43, supported by the hon. member for Oshawa (Mr. Broadbent), to present a motion similar to that presented yesterday. As the House will recall, yesterday the Secretary of State for External Affairs talked out the resolution proposed by the Canadian Polish Congress because he could not approve the world "tolerated" in the third paragraph of the resolution. Having made the appropriate changes, 1 call on all hon. members of the House to give their unanimous approval today to the following resolution from the Canadian Polish Congress:

We Canadians of Polish descent, are deeply concerned about the current events in Poland, and we call upon the Canadian government as cosignatory of the Helsinki Accords to undertake the following actions:

1. To press for the immediate lifting of martial law in Poland and the release of all Solidarity officials.

2. To press for the reinstatement of the rights of workers to form free trade unions.

3. To publicly state that any intervention by a third party or parties into the internal affairs of Poland will be viewed with the greatest of concern.

4. To send to Poland, for distribution by non-government organizations, significant economic aid in the form of food, medical supplies and agricultural machinery and feedstuffs in order that the people of Poland survive the coming winter.

We trust that the voice of the Canadian government as international mediator will be heard and that the conflicts in Poland will be resolved in a just and lasting manner.

Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Oshawa (Mr. Broadbent):

That this House express its concern by supporting the resolution.
