Mr. Trudeau:

I think all Canadians shared the thrill and excitement of Karen's dazzling performance recently in Bratislava where she unquestionably became number one. It was the culmination of 14 years of skilled effort, determination and remarkable courage. While she now may belong to the world, Canadians at home claim her as their newest and most charming goodwill ambassador. With her radiance, her grace and her obvious enjoyment of life, she will leave her mark wherever she goes. We wish her all future success.

TRANSPORTATION OF ALASKAN OIL-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION

PC

John Allen Fraser

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John A. Fraser (Vancouver South):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of pressing and urgent necessity under Standing Order 43 to ask unanimous consent of the House to act on a matter of urgency concerning the decision announced today by the United States Supreme Court wherein that court refused to overturn a lower court decision blocking the trans-Alaska pipeline project and because there is known opposition to the tanker route in Congress. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Vancouver Quadra (Mr. Clarke):

That this House immediately strike a special parliamentary committee consisting of representatives of all parties from the Standing Committee on External Affairs and National Defence, the committee on environment, the Standing Committee on Indian Affairs and Northern Development and the Standing Committee on National Resources and Public Works to determine ways and means to respond to the present situation and to submit its recommendation to this House within 30 sitting days so that the Canadian position will be clarified, both as to opposition and regarding alternatives.
