Mr. Jean Lapierre (Shefford):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to ask for the unanimous consent of the House to discuss a motion relating to a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.
Since 1976, the city of Granby, and more particularly the association formed by Granby and its twin cities, have been making representations to CIDA and asking it to provide financial assistance for a frozen fish plant project in Senegal. Since 1978, Canadian experts have been going to Senegal and creating expectations among local residents. Unfortunately, few concrete results have been obtained from these visits and talks. Therefore, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Rosemont (Mr. Lachance):
That the House recommend to the Minister of State for CIDA to inform Canadians and Senegalese of the current status of this project and of the date of its implementation if any.
