Mr. Bill Vankoughnet (Hastings-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington):

Madam Speaker, 1 rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of Canada Post and the Minister responsible for Canada Post refusing to issue a bicentennial stamp to commemorate the bicentennial celebration of the United Empire Loyalists settlement in Lower Canada in 1783 and Upper Canada in 1784, I move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Annapolis Valley-Hants (Mr. Nowlan): Consumer and Corporate Affairs' (Mr. Ouellet) threats to prosecute users of imperial measurement, and in view of the fact that many hydraulic parts for farm purposes are of SAE standards, I move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Simcoe South (Mr. Stewart): That the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs not engage in threats to prosecute distributors and users of agricultural parts which conform to SAE standards.

That this House ask Canada Post to issue a bicentennial stamp to recognize the significant contribution this migration has made to Canada's heritage. Madam Speaker: Is there unanimous consent for this motion?

YUKON TERRITORY


December 16, 1982


ECONOMIC INITIATIVES PROPOSED BY TERRITORIAL GOVERNMENT

PC

Jack Burnett Murta

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Jack Murta (Lisgar):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. The economy of the Yukon is on the verge of total collapse. In September of this year the Government of the Yukon issued a series of detailed proposals for recovery which were presented to the Western Committee of Cabinet on September 10. Since then no response has been forthcoming from the federal Government. Therefore I move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Crowfoot (Mr. Malone):

That the federal Government move immediately to support the imaginative initiatives proposed by the Yukon Government before the Territory is reduced to a complete economic disaster area.

BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE

PC

Arnold John Malone

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Arnold Malone (Crowfoot):

Madam Speaker, because legislation to enact a bill entitled Canagrex is before the House of Commons with the vice/vise of closure, and since the Bill would create yet another Crown corporation when the Auditor General has just stated that 480 Crown corporations are a subgovernment without accountability, and because Clause 14 of the Canagrex legislation gives the Government extraordinary powers of control over farm management, production, and sales, I move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Wetaski-win (Mr. Schellenberger):

That this Parliament warn the Government that whenever it introduces closure simultaneously, on two stages of debate, and before any debate on the said stages has taken place, and does so while debate on another issue is taking place, it should continue to understand that there will be a parliamentary price to pay.
