I should like to ask the secretary of state this. In view of the statement just made by the hon. member for Villeneuve, has the minister promised that hon. member a trip overseas to Africa or Asia?

I have not promised the hon. member for Villeneuve a trip such as is suggested, but I will say to the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre that I am prepared to promise him a trip.

Mr. Ricard:

Mr. Speaker, if I understand correctly, the minister is saying that there are two reasons why the hon. member was sent on a mission. Would he specify which is the official one?

Mr. Colin Cameron (Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Secretary of State for External Affairs. It is based on the appointment of the hon. member for Red Deer as a special envoy for the government of Canada. I was wondering whether the minister's attention had been brought to the fact that most of the inhabitants of the continent of Africa are of the negro race; that they have been taking a very keen interest in political developments in the United States, are well aware of the significance of Senator Goldwater's candidature and will undoubtedly take equal cognizance of the expressions of regret over Senator Gold-water's defeat by members of the party of the hon. member for Red Deer; and does he think this is likely to place the hon. member in a suitable position as Canada's representative in that continent?

Mr. Speaker, the hon. gentleman would not expect me to be responsible for all the political views-if indeed these are the views held-of any particular member.

Mr. Marlin@Essex Easl

But I do share with my hon. friend the opportunity for saying that we in this country are pleased that the United States elections are over and, without commenting on the results of those elections, of observing that Canada will continue to collaborate with the administration of the United States.

Mr. Real Caouelle (Villeneuve):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs.

In view of the fact that Russia is attempting to send cosmonauts to the moon, and that the United States are doing the same, that Canada has sent the hon. member for Red Deer (Mr. Thompson) to Africa, and that the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. Churchill) is suggesting that I be sent somewhere in the world-
