Mr. James A. McGrath (St. John's East):
Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.
If the House gives the necessary consent to my motion, I forgo the right to debate and I will also forgo the right to present the very substantial arguments supporting my motion. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Bonaven-ture-Iles-de-la-Madeleine (Mr. Bechard):
That this House reaffirms the right of Canadian sealers to go about their legitimate pursuit under the strict supervision of the Government of Canada and the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, free from harassment and interference.
Subtopic: THE SEAL HUNT
Sub-subtopic: RIGHT OF SEALERS TO FREEDOM FROM HARASSMENT AND INTERFERENCE-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
