Mr. Andy Hogan (Cape Breton-East Richmond):
Mr. Speaker, 1 would like to move a motion under Standing Order 43 regarding an extremely urgent and pressing matter.
As the present Minister of Finance (Mr. Crosbie) stated when in opposition, the Atlantic region is the hardest hit when the government increases its interest rate to record levels, causing increased unemployment, extensive bankruptcies and economic stagnation, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Sault Ste. Marie (Mr. Symes):
That this House condemns the Minister of Finance for his betrayal of Atlantic Canada and urges his immediate resignation.
