Mr. Howard C. Green (Vancouver-Quadra):
Mr. Speaker, may I ask a question of the Prime Minister. Press dispatches within the last week have indicated that the United States is planning to send a fleet of naval and coastguard vessels, numbering 96, into Arctic waters, some of which at least are Canadian territorial waters.
The dispatch says, I think, that 46 are to go from the Pacific side and 50 from the Atlantic side. Could the Prime Minister tell the house whether or not the Canadian government was consulted about this proposed expedition, and, if so, whether the government consented?
