MOTIONS UNDER S.O. 43 ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS CHEMICAL POLLUTION OF NIAGARA RIVER-LAKE ONTARIO BASIN

PC

Joseph Lloyd Reid

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Joe Reid (St. Catharines):

Madam Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Recent reports indicate that the flow of chemical contaminants into the Niagara River-Lake Ontario basin is now such that municipalities using these waters are urged to consider the development of emergency alternative sources of water supply. I therefore move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Parry Sound-Mus-koka (Mr. Darling):

That the Government of Canada, through its Department of the Environment, directly intervene in the present court proceedings already initiated and requiring immediate remedial measures to be taken with respect to the S-Area dump, the major source of this contamination.

SEARCH AND RESCUE

PC

Dave Nickerson

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dave Nickerson (Western Arctic):

Madam Speaker, whereas the SARSAT emergency location system, which uses

satellite pinpointing of ELT equipped aircraft or vessels, has already been credited with the saving of several lives, besides reducing search and rescue costs, I move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Surrey-White Rock-North Delta (Mr. Friesen):

That the Department of National Defence be mandated to extend SARSAT coverage to the West Coast and the Far North by establishing additional ground receiving stations.

OBSERVANCE OF ANTI-BOYCOTT POLICY BY GOVERNMENT AGENCIES

NDP

David Orlikow

New Democratic Party

Mr. David Orlikow (Winnipeg North):

Madam Speaker, 1 rise to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43. It was recently revealed that the Canadian Dairy Commission wilfully broke Government rules forbidding Government agencies to support the Arab boycott of Israeli goods and services. The Canadian Dairy Commission admits having entered into agreements that clearly accepted the principle of the Arab blacklist against Israel, in order to get contracts from Libya. Inasmuch as the action of the Canadian Dairy Commission violates both the letter and spirit of the Government's own guidelines, declared first in 1976 and put into regulations in 1977, and inasmuch as the move by CDC is even more deceitful by its attempt to use an intermediary business, I move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Winnipeg-Birds Hill (Mr. Blaikie):

That this House urges the Government to take action to ensure that its antiboycott policy is respected by all Government agencies. Departments and Crown corporations.

STATUS OF WOMEN

PC

Flora Isabel MacDonald

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Flora MacDonald (Kingston and the Islands):

Madam Speaker, I rise under Standing Order 43 to move the following motion. On December 6, 1982, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that, in the event of marriage breakdown, a woman who has worked outside the home during some, or all of the period of the marriage, is entitled to a share of non-family assets, but that a woman whose work has been solely in the home can receive no such benefits. Therefore I move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Parry Sound-Muskoka (Mr. Darling):

That this House urge that all legislatures and courts develop, administer or interpret family law in such a way that the woman who works in the home is not discriminated against, as she is in this most recent ruling of the Supreme Court of Canada with regard to non-family assets.
