March 26, 1979

Mr. Gerard Laprise (Abitibi):

Mr. Speaker, we must applaud the event which is now taking place in the United States, namely the signing of a peace treaty between two Middle East countries. This bodes well for the future in that part of the world. We must hope and wish that no future action will be taken to counter the tremendous efforts of these two countries and the United States to make this treaty a reality.

Mr. Laprise:

Mr. Speaker, I have a supplementary for the minister. I would like to know why they are trying to ignore the issue since that seems to be the general consensus not only among people between 60 and 65 but among all Canadians as well. And I would like to know whether rejection of that demand is due to a lack of money or the fact that the minister did not believe the goods and services industry in Canada can meet the needs of those people?

Mr. Gerard Laprise (Abitibi):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct a question to the Minister of National Health and Welfare. When it held its 8th annual convention, the Federation de l'Age d'Or du Quebec drafted a resolution calling on the minister and the Canadian government to provide old age security pension payments to all single senior citizens between the ages of 60 and 65. Could the minister indicate to us what her position is concerning this resolution and these senior citizens who I feel should be paid this pension?

Mr. Gerard Laprise (Abitibi):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under Standing Order 43 to ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion on a very important matter.

In view of the financial straits Canadian authors find themselves in, especially the newer ones whose talents are unknown because publication costs are prohibitive, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Kamouraska (Mr. Dionne):

That the House instruct the government to make funds available to these authors so that they can deposit a copy of their work in every public library in the country.

March 14, 1979

Mr. Gerard Laprise (Abitibi):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the President of the Treasury Board. Last Tuesday, March 6, I asked the President of the Treasury Board whether he had finished his inquiry on the eligibility of surplus civil servants of the Public Service Commission Language Bureau for the career counselling program. Lie answered the following, and I quote:

As I recall, we have decided to protect those people whom the hon. member referred to in the question he asked me. In other words, I think that those people who might want to follow a career counselling program will be protected until new funds are available.

However, during the last few days, several of those teachers were refused access to the career counselling program. Can the President of the Treasury Board tell us whether he is really responsible for the decisions he makes in his department, whether he is the boss in his department? Finally, do surplus teachers of the Public Service Commission Language Bureau have the right to avail themselves of the career counselling program, yes or no?
