Mr. Roland de Corneille (Eglinton-Lawrence):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Deputy Prime Minister. The Haitian military regime has been guilty of flagrant human rights violations. Not long ago, dozens of citizens who were quietly waiting their turn to vote were savagely beaten. The government cancelled this democratic election and is now planning to hold an illegal election on January 17.
In view of these events, what concrete action does her Government intend to take to support the Haitian people's quest for justice and democracy?
