John Carnell Crosbie

Progressive Conservative

Hon. John C. Crosbie (St. John's West):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that Mr. Edgar Ritchie has stated that Arthur Erickson was not recommended to design the new Canadian embassy in Washington because "his project did not measure up to others," and in view of the fact that the government cannot answer such questions as how ethical it is to establish a selection committee that will have no real role, or to ask for costly submissions from architects for a project they cannot win, or for Erickson to accept the project that the panel has decided he is not the best qualified to design, I move, seconded by the hon. member for York-Sunbury (Mr. Howie):

That Erickson's commission be revoked by the Prime Minister and the recommended firm of Zeidler Roberts be appointed so that, as the Edmonton Journal has observed, we will not have an embassy that looks like a pork barrel.

Mr. Miller:

-have been exposed by the introduction of Bill C-113. A 5.30 p.m. or 6.30 p.m. poll closure in western Canada will prevent fair access to the polls for working parents, organized and unorganized labour, farmers, and people working in small businesses. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Kootenay West (Mr. Kristiansen):

That Bill C-l 13 be withdrawn so the government can consult Canadians from coast to coast to consider alternatives to restrictive polling hours, alternatives such as stricter black-out provisions and penalties, withholding count results, delayed counting, or other propositions that could meet electoral needs and still not discriminate against voters in any region.

INDIAN AFFAIRS

NDP

James Douglas Manly

New Democratic Party

Mr. Jim Manly (Cowichan-Malahat-The Islands):

Madam Speaker, when Peguis Indians protested inadequate housing on their reserve, with as many as 15 people crammed into one house, the Manitoba Regional Director of Indian Affairs said, "I can do nothing about your housing; conditions on the Peguis are no different from many other reserves in Canada." The regional director for British Columbia admits that his budget falls $30 million short of the identified needs of the Indian people. Indian people in New Brunswick tell of cutbacks in community development programs, education programs and recreation programs. The James Bay Cree continue to live in substandard conditions. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Churchill (Mr. Murphy):

That this House demand that the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development go back to Treasury Board and obtain adequate funds so that he can meet his commitments to the Indian people.
