John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on an important matter on this historic date for all mankind. I move, on behalf of Canada whose devotion to peace has been proven over and over, seconded by the Secretary of State for External Affairs (Mr. Jamieson), the following:
That this House expresses its deep appreciation to President Carter, to the Prime Minister of Israel and to the President of Egypt at having been successful in producing a treaty which this House had hoped for as expressed in a resolution on March 7, and, furthermore, as the heads of these two countries have received the Nobel Peace Prize, and as each of them has spoken warmly of
President Carter's contribution, that an award of the Nobel Peace Prize to him would be welcomed not only by Canadians but by peace-loving people of all mankind.
