John Edward Broadbent

New Democratic Party

Mr. Broadbent:

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order concerning your ruling on the motion moved under Standing Order 43 by the hon. member for Yorkton-Mel-ville (Mr. Nystrom). If I understood your ruling correctly, Your Honour said that because of what had been said earlier with reference to other motions on the Syncrude project you had decided not to put the motion. I should like Your Honour to clarify that ruling because, according to my understanding of the rules, just because the House says no to one motion on a general subject, that does not mean, logically or in any other way, that it will be negative on another motion which is on the same general subject but the particular details of which are different. With respect, I urge that the motion of the hon. member for Yorkton-Melville be put.
