ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

THE ECONOMY

PC

Claude Girvin (Girve) Fretz

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Girve Fretz (Erie):

Madam Speaker, at the Versailles conference this past weekend our Finance Minister (Mr. MacEachen) stated, "we must do everything possible to improve the climate for investment", while our Secretary of State for External Affairs (Mr. MacGuigan) admitted to reporters that some recent measures had been counterproductive. In light of the above, as well as the report by Statistics Canada which says, "the economic data now available for the first quarter of 1982 indicates that the Canadian economy experienced the sharpest decline since 1954", I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. Catharines (Mr. Reid):

That the Finance Minister bring in a new budget to address the most disastrous economic slump in 28 years, and get over a million and a quarter Canadians back into the work force.

THE JUDICIARY

PC

Dave Nickerson

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dave Nickerson (Western Arctic):

Madam Speaker, noting that the Canadian Judicial Council has reprimanded Mr. Justice Thomas Berger for his political activity while continuing to sit as a Supreme Court judge, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Simcoe North (Mr. Lewis):

That this House reaffirms its view that judges, of necessity, ought not to engage in political activity.

AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

NDP

Lorne Edmund Nystrom

New Democratic Party

Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):

Madam Speaker, my motion arises out of the failure of the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau) to negotiate an arrangement with the Japanese Prime Minister in Versailles on the importing of automobiles into this country. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Hamilton Mountain (Mr. Deans):

That this House call upon the Government of Canada to introduce legislation immediately that would enable it to impose, in Canada, the same local content rules that exist in Australia regarding the importation of automobiles into that country.

NATIONAL ENERGY PROGRAM

PC

William Henry (Bill) Domm

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Bill Domm (Peterborough):

Madam Speaker, while the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau), the Minister of Finance (Mr. MacEachen), and the Secretary of State for External Affairs (Mr. MacGuigan) ate truffles in Versailles this weekend and blamed Uncle Sam's high interest rate policy for Canadian unemployment, the Minister of Energy (Mr. Lalonde) ate crow in Ottawa and provided at least some relief for the industrial-energy sector by reducing certain federal taxes on some oil production activity. It is clear that governments do retain some flexibility even in periods of high interest rates. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Erie (Mr. Fretz):

That this House recommend that the government incorporate into the new budget-the minute it returns from France-a thorough revamping of the National Energy Program, particularly excluding targets of 50 per cent Canadian ownership by 1990 as well as the 25 per cent retroactive government ownership in Canada lands.

June 7, 1982

These two measures alone would do much to revitalize the reeling oil and gas industry and provide a much needed job program in the manufacturing sectors of central Canada.
