November 30, 1992

Mrs. Lise Bourgault (Argenteuil -Papineau):

Mr. Speaker, first, I would like to pay tribute and express my admiration to Virginie Lariviere for her determination and courage in trying to eliminate violence from television. As the adoptive mother of a 13-year old boy, I am able to see every day the kind of children's programming available, most of which has violent images or appeals to violence.

Second, I would like to ask the millions of people who signed Virginie's petition and all those who support her efforts to do something concrete in this Christmas period by not buying violent or violence related toys and music.

Through their individual actions people will show manufacturers and legislators that we take this issue very seriously.

Once again, congratulations, Virginie Lariviere, and do not give up.

Mrs. Lise Bourgault (Argenteuil-Papineau):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of National Revenue.

Can the minister inform the House whether information that Mohawks are selling items duty-free to white people was accurate and, if so, could he tell us about the steps he has taken to stop this unlawful activity which allows non-aboriginal citizens to purchase cigarettes or other goods without paying duty, unlike the majority of Canadian taxpayers?

Mrs. Lise Bourgault (Argenteuil - Papineau):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Justice. The federal Minister of Justice is not unaware of the law enforcement problems faced by the Surete du Quebec on Mohawk reserves. Since the Mohawks have recently said through their leaders that they do not intend to comply with the new federal gun control law, what has the minister planned with the Surete du Quebec to enforce this law on Mohawk territory and can she assure us that there will be no exception and this law will apply to everyone?

Mrs. Lise Bourgault (Argenteuil-Papineau):

Madam Speaker, I do not know if you ever cross Perley bridge between Hawkesbuiy and Grenville to go to your riding. Many people and members of this House use this bridge occasionally. I can tell you that the bridge needs to be replaced as soon as possible.

In April 1992, I asked the Minister of Public Works a question, but in his absence, the Minister of Supply and Services answered me to the effect that discussions concerning work on this bridge, which involves the governments of Ontario and Quebec and of course the federal government, were about to conclude. In June 1988, four years ago, the then minister, Hon. Stewart Mclnnis, said that the bridge would reach the end of its useful life around 1992. Imagine the anxiety of my constituents who are wondering whether the bridge will be closed, whether it is safe and so on.

Since then, we have worked very hard. Plans and a prior environmental review show beyond any doubt that the public need have no concern for environmental safety and that a new bridge could be built along the present route.

On May 1, 1992, not so long ago, the minister wrote to me to say that with the change of government in Ontario, in particular, the new deputy ministers had to meet to ratify an agreement in principle on cost sharing, project management and the start date so that our constituents on both sides of the river, in Hawkesbury and in Grenville, could know what to expect. It is well-known that building a new bridge of this kind involves many factors. Many business people who had shown interest in the past in coming to spend or invest in our region have put that on hold pending developments on the Perley bridge.

I hope that the minister's parliamentary secretary will be able this evening to give us specific dates on when this work will begin and everything surrounding the building of this new bridge. In closing, I would like to add that huge amounts are being spent to maintain the bridge and keep it open to traffic. In spite of that, the people who use it are always afraid of going down with it one day. This is practically impossible, because the federal gov-

eminent, which is a good government, ensures every day that this bridge is completely safe for users.

So I eagerly await the response from my colleague, the parliamentary secretary.

May 15, 1992

Mrs. Lise Bourgault (Argenteuil-Papineau):

Madam Speaker, I too would like to remind members of this House and the general public that this is National Nurses Week. The theme "Nurses: Allies for Change" shows the key role that nurses play in looking into the system and changing and strengthening it. The physical, mental and social well-being of all Canadians depends on this system. Nurses are committed to meeting the challenge of applying the principles set forth in the Canada Health Act, to maintaining effective, affordable health services and to renewing partnerships in the field of health.

I call on my colleagues to join me in congratulating Canada's nurses.
