MOTIONS UNDER S.O. 43 DISASTERS BREACHING OF DYKES IN DELTA, B.C.

PC

Benno Friesen

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Benno Friesen (Surrey-White Rock-North Delta):

Madam Speaker, in view of the widespread and costly damage to agricultural crops and private property at Westham Island and East Delta, British Columbia, which has occurred in the past 48 hours due to a series of breaches to the Delta dykes, due to high winds and tides more than two feet above normal, and whereas the federal Government has consistently failed to meet its obligations to upgrade these dykes, in spite of repeated warnings of flood danger, 1 move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Fraser Valley East (Mr. Patterson):

That the federal Government now recognize the seriously deteriorated state of certain dykes in Delta, British Columbia, by undertaking to meet its obligations to help the farmers in that particular area.

AIR CANADA

PC

Donald Alex Blenkarn

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Don Blenkarn (Mississauga South):

Madam Speaker, Air Canada is apparently so overstaffed in its executive suites that it is making sweetheart, voluntary separation arrangements with 500 of its management personnel at a cost to the company of at least $21 million, together with untold costs to its presently unfunded pension plan. At the same time those people in the machinists' union who do aircraft maintenance and repair are being laid off and dumped on the unemployment lines. 1 therefore move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Brampton-Georgetown (Mr. McDermid):

That this House direct the Government to appoint immediately a special committee of this House, First, to examine the management of Air Canada to find out why Air Canada has 500 surplus management people in the first place, second, to determine the extent to which the sweetheart deals with its boardroom

types affect the quality of Air Canada pensions and the company's profitability and, third, to determine why Air Canada is not prepared to make realistic early retirement arrangements for all its work force, particularly its machinists.

INDIAN AFFAIRS

NDP

James Douglas Manly

New Democratic Party

Mr. Jim Manly (Cowichan-Malahat-The Islands):

Madam Speaker, officials of the Department of Indian Affairs have admitted that the Micmac Indians of Conne River are eligible to be registered as Indians under the Indian Act. The Minister admits that only political considerations have prevented him from registering them so that they could receive direct funding from the federal Government. I move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Kootenay East-Revelstoke (Mr. Parker):

That this House instruct the Minister that his top political priority should be to do justice to the Indian people and to proceed immediately with the registration of the Conne River Indians.

FISHERIES

PC

John Carnell Crosbie

Progressive Conservative

Hon. John C. Crosbie (St. John's West):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. The Minister of Fisheries and Oceans (Mr. De Bane) stated in St. John's, in The Daily News of December 7, that "Canada has been burned in the fisheries treaty with the European Economic Community and may break the contract to get out of it", that Canadian officials were under the impression that the tariff reductions negotiated in return for allotting EEC member countries the right to take 15,000 tonnes of fish from Canadian waters would be applied in Great Britain, where Canada

December 17, 1982

exports fish products, but instead the EEC allocated the rights to West Germany which buys almost no fish, so that Canada got the raw end of this deal. He also said that the treaty was "a great disappointment", so that "one of the remedies is to terminate the treaty". I move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Bruce-Grey (Mr. Gurbin):

That this savage indictment by the present Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, of the former minister, now the Minister of Public Works, and of the officials responsible for the negotiation of this fisheries treaty signed in January, 1982, over the objections of the Government of Newfoundland and the Canadian fishing industry, be followed up by disciplinary action, including the dismissal of the Minister of Public Works and the officials whose negligence and incompetence caused this great disappointment and caused Canada to be burned at the same time Canada suffered a snow job from the negotiators for the European Economic Community.
