ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

HOUSING

PC

Douglas Grinslade Lewis (Deputy House Leader of the Official Opposition; Progressive Conservative Party Deputy House Leader)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Doug Lewis (Simcoe North):

Madam Speaker, in February ten Liberal Members of Parliament from Montreal and two cabinet ministers demanded that the federal government take action to create jobs. They urged the government to stimulate the housing construction industry and create jobs for workers under the age of 25. No action has been taken by the Liberal government. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Mississauga South (Mr. Blenkarn):

That the Liberal government take immediate action to stimulate the housing construction industry and create jobs for workers under the age of 25, in accordance with the request of 12 MPs from the Montreal area.

NUCLEAR ENERGY

NDP

Mark Willson Rose (N.D.P. Caucus Chair)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Mark Rose (Mission-Port Moody):

Madam Speaker, yesterday in Vienna, Carlos Madero, the head of the Argentinian nuclear program, told the International Atomic Energy Agency that Argentina reserves the right to develop nuclear weapons. This admission makes a total mockery of Canada's bilateral Candu agreements with the junta, and underlines the hypocrisy of entering into nuclear sales agreements with military dictatorships which refuse to sign the U.N. nonproliferation treaty. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Beaches (Mr. Young):

That the government add some bite to its incessant barking about world peace and disarmament by announcing a Canadian freeze on all nuclear dealings with Argentina at the Special U.N. Session on Disarmament, and that this House offer its sincere congratulations and gratitude to the east coast longshoremen who have refused to load uranium destined for Argentina.

THE ECONOMY

PC

Walter Franklin McLean

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Walter McLean (Waterloo):

Madam Speaker, a group of eight Liberal Members of Parliament under the direction of the hon. member for Kitchener (Mr. LaJig) have urged the Liberal government to lower interest rates. That group believes that Governor Bouey is only partly correct when he says you cannot lower interest rates. Since no meaningful action has been taken by the Liberal government to lower interest rates, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Cambridge (Mr. Speyer):

That the Liberal government take immediate action to lower interest rates in accordance with the demands of eight Liberal MPs under the direction of the hon. member for Kitchener.

FINANCE

IND

William J. Yurko

Independent

Mr. Bill Yurko (Edmonton East):

Madam Speaker, equity investment pessimism is pervasive in Canada. Canadians are investing their money outside Canada and in high-interestbearing bonds and certificates. This has substantively curtailed the ability to generate equity capital in Canada and has jeopardized the survival of small business in Canada because of the high cost of debt capital. A new budget is necessary to create confidence in the Canadian economy, and it must contain incentives for equity investment. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bow River (Mr. Taylor):

That any new budget abolish capital gains taxation on all equity investment in Canadian registered companies.
