Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):
Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, namely, that in view of the UN conference of western leaders in Washington, and the UN General Assembly in New York on disarmament indicating the deep concern of the United States, although Canada has been virtually silent both in parliament and outside with respect thereto, regarding Cuba's warring intervention in Africa, with Soviet inspiration, by which the U.S.S.R. has taken over Angola and now threatens other countries, 1 move:
This Flouse, recognizing that the Prime Minister of Canada is an intimate friend of President Castro, believes that if the Prime Minister were to make a public condemnation of Cuba's military operations it could be most influential in causing Castro to desist in his course of warlike action that may lead to a third world war, calls on the Prime Minister publicly to demand that Castro desist from his war operations and return the Cuban troops to their homeland.
