MOTIONS UNDER S.O. 43 CANADIAN WHEAT BOARD SUGGESTED ANNUAL ANNOUNCEMENT OF PAYMENTS TO FARMERS

PC

Leonard J. Gustafson

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Len Gustafson (Assiniboia):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Failure on the part of the Minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board to announce, on a regular, yearly basis, payments to western farmers with regard to the western grain stabilization and the Canadian Wheat Board payments leaves western farmers with a great deal of uncertainty with respect to their year end business and the operation of their farms. I move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Portage-Marquette (Mr. Mayer):

That this House request the Minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board to make regular yearly announcements pertaining to the Canadian Wheat Board payments and the western grain stabilization payments, thereby taking the political manipulation out of the system, by using a reasonable business practice.

Mr. Antonio Yanakis (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Labour):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Yesterday, it was with a sense of shock that we heard of the sudden decease of the Hon. Remi Paul, Justice of the Provincial Court in Quebec City and illustrious citizen of Louiseville, in the riding of Berthier-Maskinonge-Lanaudiere. Remi Paul was a member of this House from 1958 to 1964, under the Hon. John Diefenbaker who was then Prime Minister of Canada, he represented the same riding of Berthier-Maskinonge-Lanaudiere I have the honour of representing today. Mr. Paul is particularly well remembered for his frequent attendance in the House, his speeches and as Vice-

Chairman of Committees of the Whole. After a very busy career of more than seven years in the House, Mr. Paul was called to represent his fellow citizens in the Quebec National Assembly from 1966 to 1974, where he was appointed Speaker. Quebec remembers him especially as the Minister of Justice when the Hon. Daniel Johnson was Premier of Quebec. In 1974, Mr. Paul was appointed to the Provincial Court and became known as a conscientious and humanitarian judge, which will not surprise those who knew him. The people of his riding will remember him as a Member who was very close to his constituents and entirely dedicated to their cause. In him, Quebec has lost a great citizen who used all his talents given him by Providence to serve the people.

Madam Speaker, I move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Joliette (Mr. La Salle) and by the entire House:

That this House offer Mrs. Remi Paul, her children and relatives our heartfelt condolences on this very sad occasion.

Mr. Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg-Assiniboine):

Madam

Speaker, a 1.5 per cent payroll tax introduced by the NDP Government of Manitoba is severely affecting the operation of Manitoba hospitals. Therefore I move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Provencher (Mr. Epp):

That this House direct the Minister of National Health and Welfare to launch an immediate inquiry into the devastating effects of this cruel and harsh NDP hospital tax, to ensure that health care will not deteriorate and to make certain that hospital staff will not have to be laid off because of this additional NDP hospital tax.

CANADIAN TRANSPORT COMMISSION

NDP

William Alexander (Bill) Blaikie

New Democratic Party

Mr. Bill Blaikie (Winnipeg-Birds Hill):

Madam Speaker, on November 25 Canadian Pacific's West Toronto station was demolished. This loss to Canada's heritage and the way it was carried out underline the urgency of establishing legislative reform to protect historic railway buildings. Canadian Pacific argues that it is exempt from provincial or municipal regulations pertaining to heritage buildings, but the Canadian Transport Commission states that there is no relevant federal law concerning this matter, either. In view of the fact that the CTC already protects the natural environment, which is threatened by railways, but balks at protecting the built environment because its mandate must be clarified, and because it is important to have a way to halt the demolition of historic railway buildings which are valued by the community, 1 move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Regina West (Mr. Benjamin):

That the federal Government bring in legislation clarifying the CTC's right to hear argument on the social value of railway property and to block destruction of those assets if necessary.
