Mr. Benno Friesen (Surrey-White Rock):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.
Last week the National Film Board, in Montreal, celebrated a film festival. It has been reported to me that at the end of the festivities a Canadian flag was burned in the yard of the National Film Board headquarters. In view of the seriousness of such a report, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Saskatoon-Biggar (Mr. Hnatyshyn):
That the Secretary of State investigate this report to establish its validity and, if it is found to be true, investigate the circumstances, determine who was involved and report back to the House on his Findings.
