Nelson Andrew Riis (N.D.P. House Leader)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Nelson A. Riis (Kamloops-Shuswap):

Mr. Speaker, it is my honour to present a petition pursuant to Standing Order 106 on behalf of a number of constituents from western Canada who believe that the present Government lacks a mandate from the people of Canada to conclude a trade deal with the United States.

They believe very strongly, Mr. Speaker, that as a result of the trade deal Canadian sovereignty would be seriously compromised. They believe also that the deal itself would deny Canada the policy freedom to determine its own economic future and undermine Canada's ability to build a society distinct from that of the United States.

They actually have a whole number of other concerns. Let me simply summarize by saying that they are asking for Parliament to dissolve now to allow the people of Canada an opportunity to accept or reject the proposed trade deal during a national general election.

Mr. Anthony Roman (York North):

Pursuant to Standing Order 106, I have the honour to present a petition on behalf of

Order Paper Questions

constituents asking the Government to intercede with Canada Post regarding the installation of supermailboxes in Maple, Ontario.

These petitioners live in an old, established community which never has had door-to-door delivery and which does not wish to see the problems associated with supermailboxes.

They are much more willing to continue their tradition of general mail delivery and pick up, and estimate that 90 per cent of their community is in agreement. Many of these individuals are angry. They, all of them, look to our Government for an ear to their needs and a stop to this construction.

Harvie Andre (Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Harvie Andre (Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs):

1. No. Providing postal services through a "franchised" outlet is a relatively new approach for the Corporation. A "postal franchise" has never existed at the Lake Bonavista Shopping Centre. However, until recently there was a private sector postal outlet located in the Shopping Centre-known as a Retail Postal Outlet.

In the immediate vicinity of Lake Bonavista Shopping Centre, there are two Retail Postal Outlets currently operating. These include RPO No. 122 in Southcentre Mall, located at Macleod Trail and Anderson Road, and RPO No. 156 in the Deer Valley Shopping Centre, located at Canyon Meadows Drive and Bow Bottom Trail.

September 22, 1988

Orders for Return

The Southcentre Mall and the Deer Valley Shopping Centre have been identified as future full service sites, which will improve the accessibility of products and services in the immediate area. Currently, customers must travel approximately 2.5 km from the Lake Bonavista Shopping Centre, to Postal Station "F" for full service.

In addition to these two full service sites, there will be approximately 12 stamp shops in the area, including one at the Lake Bonavista Shopping Centre.

In keeping with Canada Post Corporation's commitment to providing improved customer access to postal products and services, this new configuration of postal outlets means better service for residents in the Lake Bonavista area.

(a) The Lake Bonavista Shopping Centre Retail Postal Outlet (formerly known as a sub-post office) was in operation for more than a decade, until its recent closure by the operator in early 1988.

(b) Financial arrangements between Canada Post Corporation and its private sector operators is considered proprietary information. The outlet located at the Shopping Centre was a private sector outlet and, therefore, the operator's remuneration was based on revenues at the outlet.
