Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that the report of the Royal Commission on Corporate Concentration constitutes a $3 million whitewash of the problems associated with the concentration of corporate power, problems which have now been recognized by most other industrial countries, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):
That this House urges the government to consider seriously applying the Minister of Transport's user-pay principle and regain from large corporations in Canada the $3 million misspent in producing this slick advertising propoganda on their behalf.
