October 23, 1974

Mr. Ray Hnatyshyn (Saskatoon-Biggar):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Minister of Labour? Has the minister received a submission from the Saskatchewan Railway Employees Association, whose headquarters are in Biggar, Saskatchewan, requesting his intervention with a view to postponing the implementation by the railway companies of the compulsory check-off of union dues, to be initiated at the end of this month, until a countrywide referendum of railway employees can be held, and if so would the minister advise the House of his intentions in this regard?

Mr. Hnatyshyn:

To carry on with my 20 minute question period, may I bring to the attention of the minister the fact that according to authoritative evidence the snowplows used by the Canadian National are at least 30 years old and require replacement. Again I ask the minister whether there is even remote consideration being given to making any funds available for the purpose of providing equipment, in particular for replacing the snowplows to deal with the inevitable snowfalls which will be experienced in the course of deliveries to the west coast this winter? Has a request been made to the railways to consider upgrading this equipment?

Mr. Hnatyshyn:

Mr. Chairman, the city of Quebec is a great city, but in Saskatoon there are people who want to fly direct to the United States. This is why we would like the minister to establish an international airport in the province. Once he gets over the first hurdle of reaching an agreement, the second hurdle will be cleared very easily.

Mr. Ray Hnatyshyn (Saskatoon-Biggar):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board. In view of the reference in the Speech from the Throne to steps which will be taken to facilitate grain handling this winter, does the government intend to bring forward legislation in this regard or, alternatively, is the minister prepared to make an immediate definitive statement about steps to be taken to facilitate grain deliveries?

Mr. Hnatyshyn:

A supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. As the president of the railway employees union earlier this month said that all CNR snowplows are at least 30 years old and need replacing, does the minister contemplate making any contribution or becoming involved in the replacement or provision of snow removal equipment and the like?
