Flora Isabel MacDonald
Hon. Flora MacDonald (Kingston and the Islands):
Madam Speaker, my question is to the Prime Minister, whose two-month delay in announcing the government's decision regarding an Olympic boycott has caused anxiety, not only among our allies but untold difficulty regarding the government's intentions among Canadian athletes.
I would like to ask the Prime Minister: given that the Conservative government had initiated detailed discussions with other countries about the holding of international games of a comparable standard in one site, or several sites or countries, since this had already been undertaken, what has the Liberal government done to advance this planning so that our athletes could be assured of such kind of international competition?
