Therefore, 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Kingston and the Islands (Miss MacDonald):
That this House direct the Secretary of State for External Affairs to make a clear statement of Canada's position regarding the military intervention of the United States, or any other foreign government, into the present civil strife in El Salvador.
