In view of the fact that there has been a great deal of flooding this spring throughout Ontario, and in view of the fact that a crisis has arisen in the riding of Simcoe North, where water levels are under the jurisdiction of the Minister of the Environment, through Parks Canada, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Mississauga South (Mr. Blenkarn):
