MR. D'ARCY: To the Minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources. Back on February 27 of this year, order-in-council 44280 was passed which orders that the commissioners appointed by order 170179 "shall report their findings and recommendations to date to the Lieutenant Governor-in-Council on or before the 31st day of May 1980." It goes on to indicate the methods by which they shall report and rescinds certain other orders-in-council.
My question to the minister is: since, under this order, there is absolutely no mention of a moratorium on uranium mining and exploration, what is the legal basis for the moratorium on uranium mining and exploration announced on February 27 by the Premier of the province of B.C.?
HON. MR. McCLELLAND: Well, Mr. Speaker, I'm a bit at a loss to understand the urgency of this question from last May. But the legal procedures in which we established the moratorium have been partially put in place by further orders-in-council which were passed following that order-in-council which the member mentions. There is also at the present time an amendment on the order paper which we'll have the opportunity to debate, which sets the parameters along with the regulations for the uranium moratorium.
I don't understand, first of all, whether or not the question is in order, especially since there are some proceedings which will be debated in this House, presumably within the next few days.

Did the BC Liberal Government, of British Columbia, ADD the word "not" to stop mining companies from explorations in our our pristine province? Where oh Where is copy before this?
