Mr. Walter McLean (Waterloo):
Madam Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43 I rise on a matter of urgency for the people of Waterloo region. Despite representations by business and labour to each member of the cabinet committee on Industrial and Labour Adjustment Programs, the government continues to ignore the plight of the growing number of unemployed in Kitchener-Waterloo and surrounding communities.
The meagre support to the automotive parts industry is of little help in addressing the social cost from unemployment across the communities. I move, therefore, seconded by the hon. member for Wellington-Dufferin-Simcoe (Mr. Beatty):
That this House direct the government's I LAP committee to bring forward quickly some practical and creative responses to present unacceptably high levels of unemployment, so that communities like Kitchener-Waterloo can, once again, confidently attract industrial growth.
Subtopic: REGIONAL ECONOMIC EXPANSION
Sub-subtopic: NEED FOR MEASURES UNDER INDUSTRIAL AND LABOUR ADJUSTMENT PROGRAM-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
