John Mercer Reid
Hon. John M. Reid (Kenora-Rainy River):
Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Secretary of State for External Affairs. A delegation from the Canadian section of the Canada-U.S. Parliamentary Association met recently in Washington with the two Senators from the State of Alaska and the two Senators from the State of Washington, to discuss the stalled West Coast salmon treaty negotiations. One of the recommendations of the Canadian group was to have the Minister appoint a personal representative, just as the United States Secretary of State has appointed a personal representative. Would the Minister indicate whether or not he will accept this recommendation and if, in fact, he has appointed a personal representative to fulfil these duties?
