THE ECONOMY

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dave Nickerson (Western Arctic):

Madam Speaker, when the Government of Canada cannot sell its bonds even when the yield is set at 16 per cent, we know that there is something wrong, not only with the Canadian economy but also with the government itself. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bruce-Grey (Mr. Gurbin):

That the government be immediately obliged to lessen pressure on capital markets by reducing its horrendous $16 billion deficit, thereby restoring confidence in Canadian government paper.

METRIC CONVERSION

William Henry (Bill) Domm

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Bill Domm (Peterborough):

Madam Speaker, on May 14, 1982, as reported at page 17449 of Hansard, the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs (Mr. Ouellet) stated that he was ready to have discussions with the retail food industry to find out if it was feasible to excuse some small retailers from compulsory metrication. Yesterday I learned from a confidential source that, instead of working with the group on scales, which includes some 50 representatives of the whole industry, he intends to meet next Monday with only six members of the group who represent umbrella associations within the retail food industry under the chairmanship of an employee of the Toledo Scale Manufacturing Company of the United States. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Cambridge (Mr. Speyer):

That in view of the quite disastrous effects of the present economic situation on Canadian businesses, particularly small businesses which include the independent food retailers, the industry as a whole, represented by the working group on

scales, some 50 members, should be fully consulted, rather than this apparent doublecross and the stacking of the deck against the small independent retailers.

Terence James (Terry) Sargeant

New Democratic Party

Mr. Terry Sargeant (Selkirk-Interlake):

Madam Speaker, yesterday in Winnipeg the president of the Aluminum Company of Canada announced the postponement of construction of a 200,000 tonne aluminum smelter in Balmoral, Manitoba. Whereas this announcement means the loss, for now, of some 700 permanent jobs, to say nothing of jobs in site construction and the needed hydro development, and whereas the company laid the blame for this postponement on weak markets, lower prices, and other ramifications of the continuing recession, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Churchill (Mr. Murphy):

That this government abandon its ruinous economic policies which have strangled the Canadian economy, costing tens of thousands of jobs in its vain attempt to save it from inflation.

THE CONSTITUTION

IND

William J. Yurko

Independent

Mr. Bill Yurko (Edmonton East):

Madam Speaker, this Thirty-Second Parliament is unique in that it patriated the Canadian Constitution from Great Britain. No one man or woman in Parliament has accomplished this. Each and every member of this Thirty-second Parliament has helped to make it possible. Over two years ago on May 9, 1980, this House unanimously passed a motion to initiate the successful process,

June 16, 1982

and on December 2 last this House passed the final resolution. Therefore, in recognition of this momentous event, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Don Valley East (Mr. Smith) and the hon. member for Edmonton West (Mr. Lambert), and having had favourable discussions with both the House leader and the acting House leader of the NDP:

That this government consider the advisability of erecting, at an early date, a suitable monument on the grounds of Parliament containing engraved plaques which include:

1. A listing of all significant milestones in the process of patriation of Canada's Constitution.

2. A full-sized replica of the Proclamation signed by the Queen.

3. An alphabetical listing of all the Members of the Thirty-Second Parliament, including the names of those who are deceased and those who have gone to other responsibilities.
