Mr. Roch La Salle (Joliette):
Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion.
Given the undertaking made by the government in the Speech from the Throne to give additional assistance to Canadian athletes, and considering the answer given yesterday by the minister responsible, who apparently considers reasonable to earmark for that purpose a meagre 5 per cent of Loto Canada revenue, considering also the unavoidable responsibility of the government to provide the necessary support for training the athletes who will represent our country at the next Olympic Games in Moscow, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Hochelaga (Mr. Lavoie):
That the House unanimously recommend to the minister that a special and sufficient fund be created as soon as possible to ensure that our country be represented in Moscow by a delegation which will deserve our pride and will be a logical continuation of the recent Olympic Games in Montreal.
Subtopic: OLYMPIC GAMES
Sub-subtopic: PARTICIPATION IN MOSCOW GAMES-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
