Progressive Conservative

Mr. Heath Macquarrie (Hillsborough):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs. It has reference to the unique and unusual situation in which one government minister advises the citizens of Canada to do what he believes the government and Canada itself cannot do, namely, boycott Danish goods. I would like to ask what the government is doing in reference to the government of Denmark to press this matter forward? Are we recalling our ambassador from Copenhagen for consultation? In short, when are we ending our mealy-mouthed diplomacy on this matter?
