ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS

PC

Stan Darling

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Stan Darling (Parry Sound-Muskoka):

Madam Speaker, the government is clearly aware of the vital necessity of establishing an immediate program for the reduction and eventual elimination of acid rain, the greatest single threat to our environment today. It is also aware that, although acid precipitation from the United States contributes significantly to the problem, that country's administration is obviously unwilling to participate in a meaningful way in such a program. In light of the recent collapse of bilateral negotiations, due to the obstructive attitude on the part of U. S. representatives, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Prince Edward-Hastings (Mr. Ellis):

That the Prime Minister immediately contact President Reagan to demand that priority action be taken by both nations to solve the serious problem of acid rain.

HOUSING

PC

Leonard J. Gustafson

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Len Gustafson (Assiniboia):

Madam Speaker, housing in Canada is in a deplorable situation, while housing starts in the United States are up 22.3 per cent. The Premier of Saskatchewan today is implementing a mortgage interest rate of 13.25 per cent for housing in Saskatchewan, which will stimulate housing starts in that province. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bow River (Mr. Taylor):

That this government take positive steps on interest rates before the House closes, in order to put an end to the depressed state of the housing industry in Canada.

NATIONAL ENERGY PROGRAM

PC

Lorne Everett Greenaway

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Lome Greenaway (Cariboo-Chilcotin):

Madam Speaker, Mr. Ed Clark, the architect of the Liberal government's ruinous National Energy Program, is being sent off to France for one year at a cost to the Canadian taxpayer of approximately $70,000, in order that he may work for a Paris-based multinational, a company that would appear to have a death wish.

Lorne Everett Greenaway

Mr. Greenaway:

In view of the disastrous effect that Ed Clark's policies have had on the Canadian energy sector and the entire Canadian economy, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Edmonton-Strathcona (Mr. Kilgour):

That the government fire Ed Clark and urge him to spend the next year in western Canada instead of in Paris, in order that he can explain the National Energy Program to the thousands who have lost their jobs and businesses as a result of his destructive policies.
