Mr. Doug Fee (Red Deer):

Madam Speaker, I understand the interest that the hon. member has in this. As a member of the Standing Joint Committee on Scrutiny of Regulations I am wondering if he is not bringing this up a little prematurely.

He is referring to a report that is only a draft report at this time. It has not even been discussed at committee. It has not yet been presented to this House.

Madam Speaker, for your deliberation I would like to refer you to Beauchesne's sixth edition, page 241, citation 877 on premature disclosure of a report. It says:

(1) No act done at any committee should be divulged before it has been reported to the House. Upon this principle the House of Commons of the United Kingdom, on April 21,1937, resolved "That the evidence taken by any select committee of this House and the documents presented to such committee and which have not been reported to the House, ought not to be published by any member of such committee or by any other person".

This is a topic which is before another committee and I would suggest that in your deliberations, Madam Speaker, you should reserve judgment. This should not be a topic for further debate in this House before such time as the committee has had a chance to complete its deliberations and report to the House.

Mr. Doug Fee (Red Deer):

Madam Speaker, it is my privilege today to present four large petitions that have all been certified correct according to Standing Order 36.

These petitioners, many from my riding and others from as far away as Fort McMurray in the north and Lethbridge in the southern part of Alberta, all express concern and recognize that treaty rights entitle Indians to preserve their traditional way of life, including hunting, fishing and gathering.

They express concern that completely unregulated hunting interferes with good conservation and sound wildlife management practices. They call upon the government to conclude an agreement with Canada's treaty Indians regarding sound wildlife management that would restrict native rights to hunt, fish and gather for personal consumption needs and prohibit the sale for profit of wildlife meat or parts obtained by treaty rights.

Mr. Doug Fee (Red Deer):

Mr. Speaker, on a sombre note I rise to pay tribute to victims of work related accidents on this National Day of Mourning.

In Canada work place fatalities and injuries cost about $9 billion each year for direct compensation to individuals, retraining and lost productivity.

No amount of dollars can replace a human life. Occupational health and safety is everyone's concern. Safety and health efforts must be both preventive and proactive.

Education and training are required to nurture the kind of awareness that will minimize work place accidents and illnesses. While governments and laws serve a useful regulatory function, it is still the workers and employers who must work together to create safe work places.

On this sombre occasion, it is not enough to mourn those who have died. We must encourage everyone, labour or management, to rededicate themselves to improved safety programs and to making safe and healthy work environments a reality.

April 28, 1993

Mr. Doug Fee (Red Deer):

Mr. Speaker, I have a second petition signed by a number of people from central Alberta who are expressing their concern that Planned Parenthood is asking for government funding for a project known as sexuality information resource clearing house, the funds for which would come from the tax money of the citizens of Canada.

They are expressing concern that this is an unnecessary duplication of services already provided, and call upon Parliament to withhold all financial support for the Planned Parenthood project.
