November 12, 1979 (31st Parliament, 1st Session)


Jean-C. Lapierre


Mr. Jean Lapierre (Shefford):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, I seek the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.
In view of the fact that budget cuts have greatly reduced the supply and development of new postal services in Canada, which has resulted in serious deficiencies in the services pro-

vided to all Canadians, but more specifically to the people of Rock Forest within my constituency, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Rosemont (Mr. Lachance):
That the House recommend that the Postmaster General (Mr. Fraser) carry out a full and complete reassessment of the postal service in Canada, giving special attention to boom towns where quick development has resulted in rapid deterioration of the postal service, and to announce as soon as possible to the House the appropriate corrective measures.
