Mr. Stan Darling (Parry Sound-Muskoka):
Madam Speaker, the government is clearly aware of the vital necessity of establishing an immediate program for the reduction and eventual elimination of acid rain, the greatest single threat to our environment today. It is also aware that, although acid precipitation from the United States contributes significantly to the problem, that country's administration is obviously unwilling to participate in a meaningful way in such a program. In light of the recent collapse of bilateral negotiations, due to the obstructive attitude on the part of U. S. representatives, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Prince Edward-Hastings (Mr. Ellis):
That the Prime Minister immediately contact President Reagan to demand that priority action be taken by both nations to solve the serious problem of acid rain.
