Hon. Warren Allmand (Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs.
This week in a historic event, Canada and 79 other nations signed the comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty at the United Nations.
Unfortunately, some of the nuclear threshold states, including India, have stated that they would not sign. Could the minister say what steps Canada is taking to bring India and these other countries on side and to ensure that this important treaty comes into force as soon as possible?
