Mr. Geoff Scott (Hamilton-Wentworth):
Madam Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a grave matter of urgency which I hope will receive sympathetic support on all sides of this House.
In view of at least 26 more Iranians dying on Monday before a firing squad, including two leaders of the Baha'i religious sect, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Eglinton-Lawrence (Mr. de Corneille):
That this House of Commons deplores the continued persecution of religious minorities in Iran, especially the 200,000 Baha'is, and urges that this total abuse of religious tolerance be brought to the attention of the Human Rights Committee of the United Nations.
