Mr. Bud Bradley (Haldimand-Norfolk):

Madam Speaker, yesterday the hon. member for Elgin (Mr. Wise) asked the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Whelan) what proposals he had to aid farmers now, since the Farm Credit Corporation and Small Business Development Bonds have failed. The Farm Credit Corporation is out of funds and the banks are reluctant to issue Small Business Development Bonds. The minister gave us the same idiotic runaround we are always getting. Obviously, no one over there cares about agriculture. Farmers are going bankrupt in ever-increasing numbers, and the Minister of Agriculture says it is no worse than in other sectors of other industries. I might remind the minister, Madam Speaker, that his responsibility is not those other industries; his responsibility is agriculture.

Mr. Bradley:

Must we have the initiation of food stamps before the government will address the problems in agriculture? This issue must be resolved now. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Simcoe North (Mr. Lewis):

That the whole issue of farm financing be immediately referred to the Standing Committee on Agriculture where it can and will be addressed.

SUGGESTED RECONSIDERATION OF GOVERNMENT POLICY-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

David Kilgour

Progressive Conservative

Mr. David Kilgour (Edmonton-Strathcona):

Madam

Speaker, parts of the National Energy Program are as destructive as anything ever done by a democratic government in the

free world. It has, for example, to date subsidized the import of foreign oil out of the public purse at an estimated cost of $17 billion, which represents more than 20 per cent of our national debt.

David Kilgour

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Kilgour:

This subsidy program now favours imported oil at the expense of oil from western Canada. In April alone approximately 300,000 barrels a day were expected to be locked in, representing unnecessary oil imports costing approximately $12 million a day. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Assiniboia (Mr. Gustafson):

That the government reconsider the more perverse aspects of its energy policy.

Hon. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa):

Madam Speaker, the problems of the Polish people continue to be of great concern to all Canadians. Considering that today the Polish Alliance of Canada is celebrating its seventy-fifth anniversary here in the Parliament buildings, and considering that Her Worship Mayor Marion Dewar, Mayor of the City of Ottawa, has declared Thursday, May 20, 1982, Polish Day, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Parkdale-High Park (Mr. Flis):

That this House support the mayor on this day and urge all citizens of Ottawa to continue to show their concern and support for the people of Poland.
