Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):

Mr. Speaker, in view of the fact that there are no longer days set aside for discussion on foreign affairs, as was customary in the past in successive governments, pursuant to Standing Order 43 I move the adjournment of this House, seconded by the hon. member for Esquimalt-Saanich (Mr. Munro), to discuss a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, which was particularly emphasized by Dr. Joseph Luns, Secretary General of NATO in Ottawa a couple of days ago when he said intervention by the Soviets "is a serious blow to east-west detente",-

-this House condemns in strong and unequivocal terms the invasion of Angola by Cuban and other troops in the interests of world peace and the right of nations to self-determination, and asks that Cuban and all other foreign troops should remove themselves from Angola.

ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS

NDP

Stuart Malcolm Leggatt

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stuart Leggatt (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to Standing Order 43. The report of Environment Canada dated January 14, 1976, states that offshore drilling in the Beaufort Sea could result in a blowout which would go uncontrolled for a period of at least one year and take up to three years to control, resulting in a massive kill of seals, birds, whales, polar bears and other wildlife, further denuding the capacity of natives to live from the land. In view of the fact that the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs intends to conduct hearings for six communities in three days in the north making the consultation process a farce, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Brant (Mr. Blackburn):

That approval be withheld from any company for offshore drilling until a full parliamentary inquiry has been held into the environmental effects of such drilling and further that the terms of reference of the Berger commission be expanded to include the subject of offshore drilling.

Eudore Allard

Social Credit

Mr. Eudore Allard (Rimouski):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask the unanimous consent of the House to introduce a very important motion and I am convinced that no member will dare reject it.

Considering that mankind proceeds from the same Creator and that we are all united one another and living in the same world, our ethnicity, our language and our religion notwithstanding, and considering also that Canadians are ever sensitive to the calamities striking their fellow citizens and other nationalities, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bellechasse (Mr. Lambert):

That this House keep a minute of silence as a mark of sympathy for the victims of the Maritimes and the victims in Guatemala heavily devastated by an earthquake, and that this House also urge the Secretary of State for External Affairs to extend to the hard hit people our deepest sympathy.
