Mr. Irenee Pelletier (Sherbrooke):

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to present a petition from several hundred constituents of mine.

To the Hon. the House of Commons of Canada, in Parliament assembled. The petition of the undersigned residents of Canada who now avail themselves of their ancient and undoubted rights thus to present a grievance common to your petitioners in the certain assurance that your Hon. House will therefore provide a remedy. The petition was drawn up by the Comite Estrien pour l'Amerique Centrale, an umbrella organization for a number of organizations such as the Carrefour de Solidarity Internationale, the Service d'Entraide Internationale, and Developpement et Paix de Sherbrooke.

Briefly, the petition expresses the desire:

First, that the Canadian Government urge the United States to recall all its troops and advisers from the territory of Central America.

Second, that the Canadian Government accept the hand of friendship offered by the Government of Nicaragua and as of now maintain privileged diplomatic relations by opening an embassy in Managua.

Wherefore your petitioners humbly pray and call upon Parliament to consider the two aforementioned requests made by the Comite Estrien pour l'Amerique Centrale. And as in duty bound your petitioners ever pray.

Mr. Pelletier:

Mr. Speaker, I believe 1 can tell the Hon. Member for Comox-Powell River (Mr. Skelly) that I in fact met with a delegation of fishermen from British Columbia yesterday. They were in my office for about half an hour. We discussed the whole issue. I told them that I would talk with the Minister about the problem they raised. I have read the different pieces of information they sent to me previous to their visit. The meeting was very cordial. I told them, having worked with the Minister of Fisheries (Mr. De Bane) when he was the Minister of Regional Economic Expansion, and as the Chairman of the Committee on Regional Economic Expansion, 1 feel that the Minister is surely one of the most openminded Ministers I know. 1 told them that the question of the B.C. fisheries was very much discussed in our caucus, and that their representations could not but help resolve the problem. I am not saying it will be resolved to the satisfaction of all, but one thing is sure, their message was heard by government Members and will definitely be passed on to the Minister.
