May 8, 1974

Mr. Frank Howard (Skeena):

Mr. Speaker, I seek the consent of the House to move a motion pursuant to Standing Order 43. The case of urgent and pressing necessity is the concern that secret negotiations may now be going on between the government and the owners of the Cassiar Cannery on the coast of British Columbia in an attempt to bring the cannery further under the control of Japanese interests. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Comox-Alberni (Mr. Barnett):

That the government disclose forthwith the relationship it has with respect to the Cassiar Cannery near Prince Rupert, B.C., especially with reference to any current negotiations to purchase the said cannery.

Mr. Frank Howard (Skeena):

Mr. Speaker, I am tempted to say that that sort of exchange proves figures do not lie. I wish to direct a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs regarding the position of Canada in its negotiations with the United States with respect to salmon stocks in each country. Has the government already reviewed or is it contemplating a review of the position Canada is taking in those negotiations? If so, can the minister tell the House what that new position is?

Mr. Howard:

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased with part of the response. Am I to take it from that remark of the minister that the government is now going to withdraw the sell-out proposals it has made to the Americans and revert to the position of June 17 and 18, 1971, when we, as Canadians, agreed with the Americans that the fish of each nation belonged to the people of that nation? Is that going to be the position we will put forward?

Mr. Howard:

Mr. Speaker, may I put the question more directly to the minister. Will the record of agreement reached between the United States and Canada in Seattle, Washington, on June 17 and 18, 1971, on salmon problems of mutual concern, which enunciated the principle of ownership of the salmon stocks by each country, be the basis of the position which the Canadian government now intends to present in these negptiations?

April 30, 1974

Mr. Frank Howard (Skeena):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Secretary of State for External Affairs a supplementary question about the halibut situation. Inasmuch as the chairman of the International Pacific Halibut Commission on March 15 in a letter to the minister suggested the possibility of even unilateral action on the part of Canada to prevent a continuation of the catastrophic decline of halibut stocks in the Bering Sea and off the Pacific coast, can he tell the House whether, if nothing arises in a concrete way out of meetings to take place with other countries, Canada has a contingency plan or is contemplating the taking of unilateral action? I am not asking what that unilateral action might be but whether the government is planning to take such action.
