Mr. Brevvin:

Mr. Speaker, I gather that it is the habit in this House to feel slightly aggrieved sometimes at the rulings of the Chair, but on the other hand, to accept them with as much grace as we can manage to muster.

I do so with respect to your ruling on Motions Nos. 4 and 6. However, with respect to Motion No. 8 I would ask the Chair to take a second look. Motion No. 8 purports to amend clause 6. Clause 6 of the bill provides that the Governor in Council may make regulations for the protection, care and management of lands comprised in forest experimental areas and lands in respect of which the minister has assumed responsibility including regulations respecting: (a) the cutting, removal and disposal of timber and so on; and (b) the protection of the flora and fauna.

The proposed amendment would add (g) the use of pesticides and pest control products, and (h) the preservation of culturally altered trees.

In other words, the first thing to be said is that the enumeration from (a) to proposed (h) merely enunciates and elaborates the general terms of the clause. It does not add anything to the clause. It merely elaborates on the definitions of the clause. There is no additional or new element added by these amendments. It clarifies and explains.

Second, the proposed enumeration includes the protection of flora and fauna. What we propose to add is the use of pesticides and pest control products and the preservation of culturally altered trees which, in turn, relates back to number (a).

I have great difficulty understanding, with due respect, the purport of the ruling. I would ask you, Mr. Speaker, if you would be prepared to take a second look at that. We do have some time because it will not be dealt with immediately. We can proceed with the other motions and you might take a moment if you would on behalf of the House to reconsider this.

The issue, of course, of pesticides and pest control products and culturally altered trees-

Mr. Brewin:

A supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. To move from the general to the particular, will the minister state whether Mrs. Luchsinger will be given such an opportunity to appear before the Security Advisory Board and present her side of the case, as suggested by Mr. John Carson who is a member of the advisory committee and who recommends such action?

Mr. Andrew Brewin (Greenwood):

Mr. Speaker, my question is addressed to the Minister of Employment and Immigration. In light of the fact that his department is contesting in the courts the right of the Canadian Human Rights Commission to question or review the activities within his department, I would ask the minister if he can assure this House that refugees, whether resident or non-resident, who apply to be allowed to stay in Canada shall first of all be told the nature of the objections to their staying in or coming to Canada and, secondly, will they be given a clearly open and personal hearing so they can present their answers to such objections?

Mr. Andrew Brewin (Greenwood):

Mr. Speaker, under the same Standing Order, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Nickel Belt (Mr. Rodriguez):

That the Minister of Employment and Immigration (Mr. Cullen) be directed to reconsider the cutting off of Outreach project No. 21-00160, Services d'aide aux Neo-Quebecois et Immigrants, in light of the fact that these services have provided placement for some 500 persons in the Montreal area, have advised recent immigrants, have been consulted by the Department of Immigration itself as well as by the Quebec department of agriculture, and have served and are equipped to deal with immigrants in 11 different languages enabling immigrants from 48 different countries to become established in Canada-
