COMMONS DEBATES — November 13, 1980
POSITION OF PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVE PARTY—MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
Mr. Gordon Taylor (Bow River): Madam Speaker. I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Whereas the Progressive Conservative Party has made it abundantly clear several times that we want the constitution patriated based on the Vancouver formula to which ten provinces agreed last September. whereas the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau) has stated in this House that the Progressive Conservative Party wanted the constitution patriated without the consent of the provinces, which is a complete fabrication, and whereas the position of the Progressive Conservative Party favouring the patrintion of the constitution with the Vancouver formula, including the consent of a majority of the provinces, was made very clear in a debate in this House on October 28, 1980. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Moose Jaw (Mr. Neil):
That this House urge the Prime Minister and the Liberal party to desist from spreading this false information.
Madam Speaker: For presentation, this motion requires the unanimous consent of the House. Is there unanimous consent?
Some hon. Members: Agreed.
Some hon. Members: No.
