Mr. G. W. Baldwin (Peace River):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. I am encouraged to do so by the strong and unanimous vote of condemnation last Thursday at the instance of the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Clark) expressing indignation at the form of certain trials in the Soviet Union, despite domestic law, because they were contrary to principles of natural justice and against the practice of Canadian courts. On a similar basis, 1 would move if leave be given, seconded by the hon. member for Grenville-Carleton (Mr. Baker):
That this House deplores the dangerous form of secret trial and the continuing restrictions involved in the case of Alexander Peter Treu which are contrary to the usual practice of Canadian justice.
