Thomas Charles Cossitt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Cossitt:

-especially when this occurred against the background of Cuban military participation in Angola, the House directs the Prime Minister to give an immediate and complete account to Parliament on all aspects of the situation, specifically including any use of Canadian territory by Cuban aircraft involved in the Angolan war, the reported invasion of the Cuban embassy in Havana by Cuban security police and finally,-

SUGGESTION UNITED STATES STOP INTERFERING IN CANADIAN AFFAIRS-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

NDP

John R. Rodriguez

New Democratic Party

Mr. John Rodriguez (Nickel Belt):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 and seek the unanimous consent of the House to deal with a matter of serious and pressing necessity. In view of the CIA's blatant attempt to jeopardize the Prime Minister's most successful visit to Cuba by using the Canadian media to spread false reports by Trans-National Oil Company employees regarding the use of Gander airport to transport Cuban military personnel to and from Angola, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Yorkton-Melville (Mr. Nystrom):

That this House go on record informing Henry Kissinger and the United States State Department to stop interfering in Canadian external affairs.

PROPOSED REMOVAL OF AMBASSADOR TO CHILE PENDING NEW LAWS TO PROTECT ARRESTED SUSPECTS-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

NDP

Andrew Hogan

New Democratic Party

Mr. Andy Hogan (Cape Breton-East Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Since the International Commission of Jurists supposed to be aimed at protecting suspects from danger of torture is inadequate, for the sake of the welfare of the Chilean people I move, seconded by the hon. member for Sault Ste. Marie (Mr. Symes):

That Canada remove the ambassador from Chile until the International Commission of Jurists approves of a new Chilean law to protect arrested suspects.

ORAL QUESTION PERIOD

EXTERNAL AFFAIRS

PC

Robert Lorne Stanfield (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Robert L. Stanfield (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Right Hon. Prime Minister. Accepting that Canada and the Prime Minister's government disapprove of foreign adventurism of the sort that Cuba is pursuing in Angola, why did the Prime Minister not take this opportunity to make this point very effectively to Cuba and to the world by simply postponing his visit to Cuba at this time?
