ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

THE ECONOMY

PC

Gordon Edward Taylor

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Gordon Taylor (Bow River):

Madam Speaker, the government is eating "crow" by giving back to the petroleum industry some $2 billion which it should never have taken in the first place, but so far the government has been unrepentant for extracting from consumers millions of dollars via the excise tax, the Canadian ownership tax, the tax on gasoline and heating oil, etc. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Mississauga South (Mr. Blenkarn):

That this House condemns the Liberal government for its greed in levying these taxes and thus killing much of the industry, and for its refusal to help consumers by returning some of the ill-gotten taxes extracted from the aged, the crippled, common workers, businesses, farmers, fishermen and others.

Will this government show no compassion for the poor?

CALL FOR INTRODUCTION OF PLANNED INCENTIVES-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

PC

Donald Alex Blenkarn

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Don Blenkarn (Mississauga South):

Madam Speaker, in the past three months the prime lending rate in Germany has dropped from 13 per cent to 11.5 per cent, in Japan from 7 per cent to 6.4 per cent, and in the United Kingdom from 14 per cent to 13 per cent, but our prime rate went up to 17 per cent. Interest rates in Canada are now 2 per cent to 4 per cent higher than they are in the United States and will probably go higher, yet our currency is even weaker on foreign exchange markets. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Bow River (Mr. Taylor):

That the government produce a new fiscal plan for Canada involving incentives to investors, both Canadian and foreign, discontinue all programs prejudicial to new investment in the country, as in the National Energy Program and FIR A, and stop wasting foreign exchange to try to prop up, by artificial means, the exchange value of our currency.

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS

NDP

Rodney Edward Murphy

New Democratic Party

Mr. Rod Murphy (Churchill):

Madam Speaker, in light of the fact that Canadian National has decided to reduce again its order of rails from the Sysco operation in Cape Breton, and since this latest cutback from 88,000 tonnes to approximately

44,000 tonnes will increase the number of jobs lost at both SYSCO and Devco, which latter supplies raw materials to Sydney Steel, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Beaches (Mr. Young):

That this House condemns CN for its callous disregard for the worker force and the economy of Cape Breton, and further condemns the laissez faire attitude of Cape Breton's three Liberal Members of Parliament, including the Minister of Finance, who continue to talk about economic growth and ignore the decline which is devastating the entire Canadian economy.

POLITICAL PARTIES

PC

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 the Liberal Leader of the Opposition in Newfoundland, Stephen Neary, stated on May 13 in the House of Assembly that he would not trust his federal Liberal colleague, the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources (Mr. Lalonde), "as far as I can throw him", and that every action of the minister justifies this observation, and in view of the fact that the actions of the Liberal government in Ottawa since May 13 show conclusively that federal Liberals cannot be trusted even as far as they can be thrown, I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John's East (Mr. McGrath):

June 2, 1982

That this House approves the statement made by the leader of the Liberal opposition in the House of Assembly of Newfoundland, with the addendum that the federal Liberals in toto cannot be trusted even as far as they can be thrown.
