Mr. Fred King (Okanagan-Similkameen):
Madam Speaker, I rise to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that today is the thirty-third anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and that Canada is one of the foremost supporters of that Declaration, having ratified the International Covenant on Civil and Human rights which gives legal expression to that declaration; and in view of the continuing abuses of human rights in almost all parts of the world by both left wing and right wing regimes, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Scarborough East (Mr. Gilchrist), the hon. member for Saskatoon East (Mr. Ogle) and the hon. member for Don Valley East (Mr. Smith):
That this House condemn human rights abuses and urge all states to conform to the norms set out in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and to ratify the International Covenant on Human Rights.
