Stanley Howard Knowles (N.D.P. House Leader)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, as one who remembers not only the depression years, but also as one who remembers-for an even longer period of time-what the CPR has done to its employees, both working and retired, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Nanai-mo-Cowichan-The Islands (Mr. Douglas), who also remembers:
That this House, noting that the Canadian Pacific Railway pays its president a salary of $330,000 a year, calls on the government to review and make public
the massive extent to which this corporation receives public funds, and insists that the CPR increase immediately the level of pensions paid to its retired employees and their survivors, at least to the full extent recommended in the Noel Hall report of 1976.
