Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):
Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I rise on the basis of President Carter having virtually ended the OPEC style of co-operation, having launched an aggressive marketing strategy for wheat in China and apparently taking for granted that Canada has made herself vulnerable to competition. I therefore move:
That this House calls on the government, in order to preserve and expand the market in China which was secured under my government and has continued since, to send a delegation immediately to Peking, composed of representatives of the Departments of Industry, Trade and Commerce and of Agriculture, the Wheat Board and national farm organizations.
Some bon. Members: Hear, hear!
Subtopic: CALL FOR EXPANSION OF WHEAT SALES TO CHINA-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
