ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

HOUSING

PC

James Aloysius McGrath

Progressive Conservative

Hon. James A. McGrath (St. John's East):

Madam Speaker, actual housing starts in urban areas for the month of May were down by a startling 51 per cent from this time last year. The MURB provisions were responsible last year for over

54,000 apartment starts. Under the Canadian Rental Supply Plan there has not been one single start up until last week. Even if we were to increase the ceiling from $7,500 to $20,000 per unit, they would still be $150 to $200 above the market rate that people pay today. Therefore 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Cambridge (Mr. Speyer):

That this House directs the Minister of Finance to reinstitute the MURB provision and to designate those funds allocated for the Canada Rental Supply Plan to non-profit and co-operative housing as part of his financial and economic statement to this House.

THE ECONOMY

PC

Ronald Alexander Stewart

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ron Stewart (Simcoe South):

Madam Speaker, 1 urge the government to act quickly to stimulate the economy and cushion the adverse effects on the average Canadian. Canadian manufacturing is operating at 60 per cent capacity, unemployment and inflation are spiralling in double digits, the Canadian dollar is at an all-time low of 78.9 cents. No matter what the Minister of Finance says, the confidence in a nation is measured by the value of its dollar. Our dollar is being threatened because of the Keystone Cops economic and energy policies of this administration. Therefore 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Bow River (Mr. Taylor):

That the Minister of Finance immediately roll back all provisions of his November, 1981, budget and the national energy policy, and table in the House a

statement of economic principles which will stimulate the economy, restore investor confidence in Canada and put Canadians back to work. Either do that or resign.

THE PRIME MINISTER

PC

Stan Darling

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Stan Darling (Parry Sound-Muskoka):

Madam Speaker, the Prime Minister set out on the road to Versailles with a farewell promise that he would return with solutions to the economic mess created in this country by his government. In the ten days he was out of the country 30,000 Canadians had to renew their mortgages at sky-rocketing interest rates, 978 businesses went broke, and 7,100 Canadians lost their jobs at a time of year when the unemployment level normally drops. In light of the fact that the Prime Minister, who left for Europe empty-minded, returned from his voyage emptyhanded, 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Prince Edward-Hastings (Mr. Ellis):

That the Prime Minister now admit to the House and to the people of Canada that whether he searches in or out of the country he can find no answers to the economic morass his government has created and, with such admission, then take the only honourable avenue open to him and call a general election so Canadians can select a government capable of halting this devastating downward slide and get the country going again.

Stanley J. Hovdebo

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stan J. Hovdebo (Prince Albert):

Madam Speaker, since the Co-operative Future Directions Congress which is in progress in Ottawa this week is meeting to develop strategies

June 14, 1982

for co-operative growth in the coming decades, and in view of the need to expand sources of affordable housing and to stabilize the supply of housing for Canadians, 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Hamilton Mountain (Mr. Deans):

That the Government of Canada immediately double the allocation of co-op housing units available in this fiscal year, and in consultation with the cooperative movement set realistic targets for succeeding years to meet the real and documented need of the co-op housing sector.
