March 13, 1979

Mr. Gilles Caouette (Temiscamingue):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a question to the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce.

Since the month of December 1978, Statistics Canada has indicated that it would no longer produce the wholesale price index. As several industries based their collective contracts on that index taken on a monthly basis, would the minister be willing to ask Statistics Canada to resume publication of those statistics precisely to allow the industries which already have collective contracts signed on the basis of the wholesale prices index to follow its monthly fluctuations?

Mr. Caouette (Temiscamingue):

Mr. Speaker, I have a supplementary question. As I said, since the young members of team "C" are not chosen on the basis of their family's or their own wealth, does the minister think it is normal that they should be the ones to finance the benefit of the Canadian Alpine Ski Association?

Mr. Gilles Caouette (Temiscamingue):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of State (Fitness and Amateur Sport). In January I sent her a letter asking that her department provide financial help for team "C" of the Canadian Alpine Ski Association. As these athletes are not chosen on the basis of the money they can bring to or collect for the association but on the basis of their skiing talents, is the minister prepared to reconsider her decision and provide the $35,000 needed to make up the deficit of the Canadian Alpine Ski Association?

Mr. Gilles Caouette (Temiscamingue):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion dealing with an urgent matter of pressing necessity.

Considering that the "C" team of the Canadian Alpine Ski Association is asking for $2,000 and $1,500 from the athletes to make up the deficit incurred by that association; considering that under the Loto Canada contract the Minister of State (Fitness and Amateur Sport) (Mrs. Campagnolo) has made Canadians lose $15 million; considering that the same minister refuses to pay the $35,000 deficit of the Canadian Ski Association and that it is unacceptable to lay the burden of that deficit on the athletes, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Villeneuve (Mr. Caouette):

That parliament enjoin the minister to pay $35,000 to the Alpine Ski Association and free the athletes so as to enable them to concentrate on sports.

Mr. Gilles Caouette (Temiscamingue):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to introduce a motion dealing with an urgent question of pressing necessity.

Given the statutory 30-day limit for any unemployment insurance beneficiary to file an appeal, and considering that those limits are not respected by the Unemployment Insurance Commission, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Rober-val (Mr. Gauthier):

That the House enjoin the Minister of Employment and Immigration to compel the commission to expedite its decisions, finalize any application or settle any dispute in a period of time equal to that granted to beneficiaries.
