Mr. Ray Skelly (Comox-Powell River):
Mr. Speaker, my question is for the President of the Treasury Board. It relates to the fact that there have been 97 air crashes in British Columbia in the last year, 54 deaths associated with those air crashes, 33 deaths in the last seven weeks, and three in my riding just the other day.
In view of the fact that the flight service centres, the only source of assistance to general aviation for 350 miles along the coast of British Columbia, are now shut in terms of general services because the Treasury Board will not meet with the representatives, I ask the President of the Treasury Board if he would give the House today his undertaking that he will have his department resume negotiations with the radio operators' union.
