Mr. Douglas (Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands):

Mr. Speaker, I have a point of order. I hope that you, sir, will take note of the fact that to the speaker of the Conservative party who moved this motion, we gave unanimous consent. I want the House to notice how ungracious certain members in the official opposition appear to be.

Mr. T. C. Douglas (Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43 I wish to raise a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, namely, the arrest by officers of the federal Department of Fisheries of several loggers working in the Queen Charlotte Islands on a project approved by the government of British Columbia and operating within the jurisdiction of the British Columbia department of forests. I ask leave to move, seconded by the member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House urges the Minister of Fisheries to cease and desist from these arbitrary arrests of loggers working on government-approved projects; and, further, that the minister immediately enter into discussions with the government of British Columbia regarding any matters now in dispute, instead of harassing workmen who are merely carrying out the duties assigned to them by their employer.

Mr. Douglas (Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask one more question. The minister has now conceded that Petro-Canada only has the authdrity, under the legislation which set it up, to import oil if the government so decides and, if the legislation which is now before the House passes, if the allocation board so decides. Could the minister tell the House where the authority to make Petro-Canada the sole importer of oil is contained in any legislation, if the minister insists on rejecting this amendment proposed by the hon. member for Sault Ste. Marie?
