June 29, 1984

Hon. Allan J. MacEachen (Deputy Prime Minister and Secretary of State for External Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, on this particular point I can only say that at the current meeting, for example, which is taking place at Stockholm, the Canadian representatives and others are continuing to press the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc countries to live up to the Helsinki Accord and to recognize the necessity of the greatest possible communication and interchange among the peoples of the world, particularly between the Soviet Bloc and other countries.

I am thankful to the Hon. Member for raising this particular point with respect to gifts and parcels which friends and relatives may want to exchange. I will be pleased to have officials of the Department raise the point with Soviet representatives as soon as possible.

Oral Questions

Mr. MacEachen:

Mr. Speaker, as provided for in the Bill, it is the obligation of the board of directors to select a chairman and director from among their own membership. No one could become a chairman or director unless that person were a member of the board. I think it will be possible for the board to select a member from among themselves. If that is not possible, they will have to use their ingenuity to solve that problem. I could give them some advice if they want to call Lake Ainslie when they reach that impasse.

June 28, 1984

Hon. Allan J. MacEachen (Deputy Prime Minister and Secretary of State for External Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, at the last meeting which I held with Secretary Shultz, the question of the Pacific salmon negotiations was fully discussed. At that time I made the suggestion that we ought to take some new steps and inject some renewed impulse into the negotiations, and raised the idea of representatives along the lines mentioned by the Hon. Member.

Since that time Mr. Shultz has appointed a personal representative and I have asked the Hon. Mitchell Sharp to act as the representative of the Secretary of State for External Affairs. Mr. Sharp has accepted. I think that he is particularly qualified to act in this capacity because, through his experience as the Northern Gas Pipeline Commissioner, he has established a personal relationship with quite a number of the persons who will be involved in this negotiation.

I make particular reference to the Senators to whom the Hon. Member has referred, because without their co-operation I doubt whether it will ever be possible for Canada to reach an agreement. We have been very close to an agreement from time to time, but in each case we have had to draw back because of some new element that was injected into the talks mainly by one State or the other, in the person of one of the Senators.
