December 4, 1979

Mr. Eldon M. Woolliams (Calgary North):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to direct a question to the Minister of National Defence and Minister of Veterans Affairs. It deals with a situation in the city of Calgary in which there is a large number of armed forces personnel, particularly non-commissioned officers and privates, and relates to wage and rent structures.

Has the minister now had a discussion with those organized groups in Calgary, and is he reaching some compromise between the wage structure and the rent structure as was agreed to even before our government came to office?

Mr. Eldon M. Woolliams (Calgary North):

Mr. Speaker, I have a motion under Standing Order 43. One of the most serious challenges of the 1980s is that we are not self-sufficient in crude oil which is becoming a fast depleting asset in spite of accelerated exploration and development. Therefore, Canada will and must become more dependent on other sources of energy, namely, natural gas, coal, electricity, nuclear energy, etc. Therefore, I move:

That in view of the fact that the National Energy Board is more of a regulatory body and has not the staff for assessing the inventory of reserves of Canada's energy, a royal commission be set up for the purpose of taking an inventory in Canada of all the potential and proven reserves of all types of energy, and at the same time estimate Canada's energy needs for the foreseeable future, as the costs of such a process would be small in relation to the revenue derived by governments and the savings to the consumer on prohibitively priced energy.

Mr. Woolliams:

Well, in his statement. I am not saying he is a hypocrite. He believes in boards, and then complains about abuses.

Mr. Woolliams:

Mr. Speaker, I wonder if the hon. member for Essex-Windsor (Mr. Whelan) will accept a question. In his speech he talked about seeing fields of tomatoes in Ontario that were not harvested. He has always been a great advocate of governing boards. There are boards that govern wheat and other commodities. Does the hon. member not feel that if we had the law of supply and demand governing, maybe these tomatoes might have been harvested? The hon. member made a great speech. Why is he so extravagant in his suggestions as to what happened? I would like to hear what he has to say. I do not live in a tomato area. I live in a wheat area where young farmers today are questioning even the Canadian Wheat Board and government interference with private enterprise. I would like to ask the hon. member about that.
