Hon. Gordon O'Connor (Carleton—Mississippi Mills, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, for a newly independent nation the road to peace and stability is seldom smooth.

On March 4, 1964, the UN adopted a resolution calling for the deployment of peacekeeping forces to the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Canada's peacekeepers used diplomatic as well as soldiering skills to maintain a fragile balance between opposing forces.

In all, 28 Canadian peacekeepers would pay the ultimate price between 1964 and 1993, and more than 25,000 Canadians have served in Cyprus since that first battalion of brave soldiers arrived 50 years ago this month.

As Canadians, we have charged ourselves with a solemn and never-ending mission to keep the memory of Canada's veterans above the tide of time.

Lest we forget.

Hon. Gordon O'Connor (Carleton—Mississippi Mills, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, I rarely stand up and speak. However, I will speak to this.

The truth is that this is all part of a filibuster on the Elections Act. First, a motion was brought against the member. In the next few days, we can probably expect concurrence motions and everything else because the NDP has declared that it would filibuster on the Elections Act.

I ask the member for Charleswood—St. James—Assiniboia whether he agrees with me.

Hon. Gordon O'Connor

Mr. Speaker, if you seek it, I believe you will find agreement to apply the results of the previous motion to the current motion, with the Conservatives voting yes.
