Mr. Pat Nowlan (Annapolis Valley-Hants):

Mr. Speaker, on government House business, the government House leader is moving out but his parliamentary secretary may be able to answer.

In view of the fact the electoral reform bill in part was ushered out of the House in a most unusual way by a closure motion after many hours, and we have the complicity of the Liberals and the NDP in this matter, I was wondering where that stood in terms of business for either Friday or the upcoming week and, second, when we are going to get back to the budget.

Mr. Nowlan:

Madam Speaker, this bill is one in which there is some duplication with some other bills of members on the whole question that irritates the public more than any other one thing about members of Parliament both in the national House and in many provincial houses. It concerns our pensions.

This bill would amend the pensions act to make sure the vesting no longer occurs after six years but at 60 years of age, six years is rather obscene, and eliminate the double-dipping provisions of members obtaining a pension and a government pay cheque in other forms. This is also very irresponsible.

I think, knowing full well that this bill may not pass before this House is dissolved, that more members who

Routine Proceedings

can focus attention on this will have to be accountable with the electorate in the election and make sure that in the new House this bill can be revived and changed in conformity to the public interest in something that is so sensitive and so wrong at the present time.

Mr. Pat Nowlan (Annapolis Valley-Hants):

Madam Speaker, I too rise under the provisions of Standing Order 36 to present a petition from 27 very conscientious and serious citizens of my hometown of Wolfville, Nova Scotia in regard to outlawing the serial killer board game which I know has come up in this House before.

Quite frankly I think it is appropriate because of the repugnance of this game to read the first whereas of this petition. The petition reads: Whereas the parents and grandparents seek a ban of a new game to be introduced in Canada called the serial killer board game; whereas this game comes with a body bag, 25 babies and four serial killer figures, the object of which is to commit murder and the person with the highest body count being

Routine Proceedings

the winner. The petitioners further state that this game is not in the best interest of children and in the wrong hands could become dangerous and they suggest it could easily impress young people.

Therefore my petitioners humbly pray, as I think all members in this House agree, that this type of obscenity should not be allowed in Canada. I hope the government continues to proceed to ban it.
