Mr. Janies A. McGrath (St. John's East):
Mr. Speaker, I am seeking the unanimous consent of the House under Standing Order 43. Yesterday in the United States House of Representatives a resolution was passed by a voice vote which, in the words of Dr. Arthur May, the Director General of Resource Services for Fisheries Environment Canada, had this to say: "The resolution was incredible and it was based on erroneous information supplied by anti-seal hunt protestors. I regret very much that the U.S. House did not see fit to advise itself on this issue. 1 would, therefore, move, with the unanimous consent of the House, seconded by the hon. member for Bonaventure-lles-de-la-Madeleine (Mr. Bechard):
That this House supports the right of Canadians to hunt seals off Canada's east coast and further supports the Minister of Fisheries and the Environment for the steps he has taken to ensure that the hunt is strictly supervised and conducted in a humane manner with quotas based on the best scientific data available to ensure proper management and conservation of the herd.
Sub-subtopic: APPROVAL OF MINISTER'S ACTIONS IN PROTECTING SEALS AND SEAL HUNTERS-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
