Mr. Steven E. Paproski (Edmonton Centre):
Mr. Speaker, I hope the government will take cognizance of my motion and not say "No". I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. My motion concerns the fact that today is the thirtieth anniversary of the foundation of the State of Israel following the holocaust in which six million Jews lost their lives during World War II.
In view of the fact that in just three decades the Israelis have pioneered what is today a great nation, I move, seconded by the hon. member for High Park-Humber Valley (Mr. Jelinek):
That this House reaffirms the right of the State of Israel to exist in peace with its neighbours, and further reaffirms the right of Israel to secure borders consistent with the need of all the peoples of the Middle East for a just and lasting peace.
