Mr. Howard Crosby (Halifax West):
Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Today Canadians from coast to coast are joining together to welcome to our nation the President of the United States of America, the Honourable Ronald Reagan. Accordingly, parliamentarians should put aside their complaints and grievances, subdue rancour, and truly represent the friendly spirit of the Canadian people toward our southern neighbour. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Burlington (Mr. Kempling):
That this House recognize the interdependence and common interests of Canada and the United States of America by extending our warmest welcome to the President and by expressing our hope that good faith and mutual trust will govern our future deliberations.
