EDUCATION

PC

James Gordon Gilchrist

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Gordon Gilchrist (Scarborough East):

Madam Speaker, every thinking Canadian knows that technological upgrading of Canadian manufacturing processes and products is the necessary prerequisite to economic recovery, sustained growth and Canadian jobs, but these jobs call for educated and trained people. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Simcoe North (Mr. Lewis):

That the Minister of Finance renounce immediately the ill-considered cutbacks in Financial aid to Canada's community colleges and universities so that talented Canadian young people can receive the teaching, and the training which is their right and which will provide Canada with the skills it desperately needs to counteract 15 years of Liberal shortsightedness in buying from other nations those things which could be produced by educated and trained Canadians.

POLITICAL PARTIES

PC

Donald Alex Blenkarn

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Don Blenkarn (Mississauga South):

Madam Speaker, ten Members of Parliament from Montreal, including two senior cabinet ministers, have decided that the economic policies produced by the government are so inept that they are intending to call public hearings into what might be done to solve the increasing unemployment problems. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for York North (Mr. Gamble):

That this House does congratulate Members of Parliament from Montreal and does demand that the Minister of National Health and Welfare and the minister of whatever it is from Hochelaga-Maisonneuve who bear responsibility as cabinet ministers for the actions of the government to come clear with their constituents and with the people of Canada and resign their cabinet positions so that the

public hearings that they will be conducting and the criticism that might be levied will appear honest and forthright.

INDIAN AFFAIRS

NDP

Terence James (Terry) Sargeant

New Democratic Party

Mr. Terry Sargeant (Selkirk-Interlake):

Madam Speaker, whereas the Peguis Indian Band in Manitoba suffers from a housing backlog of 120 units and now faces a cutback of more than 50 per cent in its 1982-83 housing allocation, whereas the Winnipeg regional director-general of Indian Affairs, Mr. Brian Veinot, has refused to negotiate in good faith with the band, even threatening to cut off housing grants entirely unless the band, with an unemployment rate of 90 per cent, seeks loans for reserve housing, and whereas the band has been forced to mount an ongoing demonstration outside the Indian Affairs offices to pressure Mr. Veinot to negotiate in good faith, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Churchill (Mr. Murphy):

That the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development direct Mr. Veinot to come out from under the rug and negotiate in good faith to solve the Peguis housing crisis and that the minister and the Standing Committee on Indian Affairs and Northern Development launch a full investigation of the operation of the regional office of the Department of Indian Affairs.

THE ECONOMY

PC

Roch La Salle

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Roch La Salle (Joliette):

Madam Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, under the provisions of Standing Order 43. The House will probably recall that two months ago, ten government members, including two ministers, had the audacity to ask, in a joint letter to the Minister of Finance (Mr. MacEachen), that additional efforts be made to stimulate the housing sector. The House will also recall that the Right Hon. Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau), speaking for the government to those unfortunate members, said that next time he would only accept a letter of resignation. Now a few days ago, more or less the same group started to meet with

May 18, 1982

Quebecers and Quebec organizations to find out what the situation was and, you will agree, better late than never. In the circumstances, in order to confer a degree of credibility on this action taken on behalf of Quebecers, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Mississauga South (Mr. Blenkarn):

That the House unanimously urge the Prime Minister to give Quebecers the assurance that this time, recommendations made by the group of Members of Parliament will not only be considered but also implemented, if the members ever have the courage to make the recommendations public.
