Don Mazonkowski Conservative spokesman on transportation, moved the motion accusing the Liberal government of failure to recog- nize "that Canada's trans- portation is vital to Canadian inity, regional equality, the en- couragement of resource devel- opment and the betterment of the urban and rural quality of sions.
