Mr. Barry Moore (Pontiac-Gatineau-Labelle):

Madam Speaker, this year the federal government is highlighting the importance of consumer credit during National Consumer Week in order that consumers can act with full knowledge when they use the credit options that are available to them.

It seems clear that marketplace conditions affecting the use of credit have undergone fundamental changes and that these conditions are likely to persist.

Oral Questions

For example, while some types of consumer debts have declined from their recent peak level the use of consumer credit is still more common than it was a decade ago. Another change involves the misuse of credit, particularly credit cards.

To address this the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs is communicating his concerns to the provinces and to credit grantors and asking them to provide their ideas on how problems of excessive indebtedness can be prevented and how the importance of the wise use of credit can be communicated effectively to consumers.

In addition to co-operative action with provincial governments and credit grantors, the Department of Consumer and Corporate Affairs will continue to make information on the wise use of credit available. This will help consumers better understand how to manage their credit responsibilities.

Mr. Barry Moore (Pontiac-Gatineau-Labelle):

Madam Speaker, National Volunteer Week, this year from April 18 to April 23, is a special opportunity for us to pay tribute and give recognition to all those individuals who volunteer their services in their local community.

Today I would like to join these communities in paying a special tribute to the contribution made by volunteers to community life.

To our volunteers I want to say thank you for your dedication and commitment. What you have accomplished deserves the respect and admiration of us all.

I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate a young lady from my riding, Annie Galipeau, a resident of Messines, who won an award in the Dramatic Arts category at the YTV Gala held last night at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa.

Congratulations, Annie, and good luck.

April 2, 1993

Mr. Barry Moore (Pontiac-Gatineau-Labelle):

Madam Speaker, I have the pleasure to inform the House that the Government of Canada has renewed today its support to the "Best Ever" Winter Program.

The program will receive $31.2 million over a period of five years starting in 1993-94.

The "Best Ever" Winter Program was introduced in 1983 by the Government of Canada (Fitness and Amateur Sports) in preparation for the 1988 Olympic Winter Games in Calgary. If the excellent performance of Canadian athletes at the last Olympic Winter Games is any indication the program has certainly reached its goals since it was introduced. It has also promoted participation in winter sports and the development of a sound administrative structure to develop sports programs.

With the Lillehammer Olympic games scheduled for less than a year from now, the renewal of this important program reflects this government's ongoing commitment to Canadian athletes and for winter sports.

February 26, 1993

Mr. Barry Moore (Pontiac-Gatineau-Labelle):

Madam Speaker, we were all saddened today to hear of the passing of a great Canadian, Mr. Danny Gallivan.

All Canadians from coast to coast have lost an irreplaceable citizen and a friend. Danny Gallivan will best be remembered as a pioneer. He revolutionized sports broadcasting as we know it today. We will all remember the voice behind Hockey Night in Canada and the Montreal Canadiens. We will surely remember the excitement and the euphoria he brought to our living-rooms on Saturday nights. The scintillating saves and the cannonading drives were all synonymous with Danny Gallivan.

One could feel his love for the game but, more important, his love for his country. Although best remembered as an avid broadcaster, Danny Gallivan nonetheless contributed as much time and dedication to the greatest of his concerns, human welfare.

In fact his love for this country and its people may be best exemplified by the multitude of charitable organizations he supported and contributed to. As well, his love for the youth of Canada was unmatched.

We will all miss Danny Gallivan.
