Mr. Benno Friesen (Surrey-White Rock-North Delta):
Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that the former B.C. Liberal leader has now firmly and publicly rejected the Liberal government's constitutional proposal when he said, "The current approach to patriation is unilateral partisan confrontation, without any regional consensus and making quite improper use of vestigial colonial ties" and in view of the news report in British Columbia indicating that the Liberal government feels that Dave Barrett's support is more important than Gordon Gibson's, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Vancouver Centre (Miss Carney):
That the Minister of Justice make a statement on motions indicating whether the Liberal government has now rejected all western Liberal Party leaders and that the Prime Minister indicate in the same way whether or not he values western NDP support more than western Liberal support.
