NEWS RELEASE: EYKING RECOGNIZES PASSING OF WILLIAM “BULL” MARSH

Posted on March 25, 2015

NEWS RELEASE

March 25th 2015

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Ottawa, ON) Member of Parliament for Sydney-Victoria Mark Eyking made a statement in the House of Commons today recognizing the passing of William “Bull” Marsh.

“Mr. Speaker, I rise to recognize a renowned Cape Bretoner, William “Bull” Marsh, who recently passed away over the weekend. Bull was born in New Waterford on January 21st, 1922. After serving four years in the Navy during World War Two, Bull went to work in New Waterford’s No. 12 Colliery, then transferred to No. 16, where he began his work with the United Mine Workers of America. In 1958 he was elected President of District 26 and held that position for 22 consecutive years. He was the longest serving president in District 26 history.

In 1965 there were 6500 miners working in Cape Breton, and Bull played a major role in securing their livelihoods. He had an amazing talent as a speaker. In his leisure time, you would find him fishing, hunting or training his Labrador retrievers.

Giving the miners a fair deal is what Bill stood for. His impact on the community was remarkable, and he will be fondly remembered for many years to come.” Eyking stated.

News Release: Eyking Questions Conservatives Delay of Grain Bill

Posted on March 24, 2015

NEWS RELEASE

March 24th, 2015

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Ottawa, ON) — Liberal Agriculture & Agri-Food Critic, Mark Eyking, says that the Conservative Government’s stalling of Bill C48, Modernization of Canada’s Grain Industry Act, is unacceptable and could be passed during the current Parliamentary session.

Eyking questioned the government in the House of Commons today asking why this bill has not moved forward since first being introduced to Parliament on December 9th, 2014:

“Mr. Speaker,
I have been meeting with grain farmers from across Canada.
Their growth and continued success depends on being a competitive supplier to international markets.
The government claims that they want to give farmers more security, increased access to processing facilities and guaranteed payment when they sell their product, but the bill they tabled last December has not turned a wheel since, and farmers are not being consulted.
Why is the Minister of Agriculture stalling C-48?”

Following Question Period, Eyking added “After speaking with many grain producers and organizations, my sense is that this is good legislation that is needed. It will not need much changing or likely debate, since most Members in the House will agree with it.” Eyking continued “Following my question in the House today, the Minister did not give grain farmers any assurances that the Conservatives are going to get this much needed legislation passed during this session.” Eyking stated “The reality is, if this is not passed in the next few months it will have to be reintroduced in the upcoming winter, which means a whole year has been lost; now is the time for Minister Ritz and his House Leader, Van Loan, to get it done.”
