May 16, 1980

Mr. Roland de Corneille (Eglinton-Lawrence):

Madam Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

Whereas Islam has recently entered the fifteenth century since its founding, an event which is universally celebrated, and whereas Islam is one of the world's great religions, encompassing peoples of all cultures, and whereas Islam strives for a brotherly community transcending the superficial differences of race, history or nationality and is thus being implementary of the spirit of multiculturalism, 1 would move, seconded by the hon. member for Kent (Mr. Bossy):

That this House take note of the contribution of Islam and Canadians of Islamic faith and wish them success in their continuing pursuits to give reality to a truly multicultural society that is Canada today.

December 7, 1979

Mr. Roland de Corneille (Eglinton-Lawrence):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of State for International Trade. In view of the fact that there is always a necessity for Canadian business to be able to rely upon dependable and reasonably-priced energy for its creation or its continuation, was the minister consulted before this decision was taken and, if he was, what is his view as to how the proposed export gas will have an effect in terms of giving some hope, promise or solidity to Canadian businesses to dare to venture forward either to expand their present business or to create new business; or is there an idea that there is going to be, on the basis of past NEB figures, a great reliance upon just that figure for the future?

November 21, 1979

Mr. Roland de Corneille (Eglinton-Lawrence):

Mr. Speaker, I address my question to the Prime Minister because 1 believe many members of the House are concerned, not only about the immediate problems facing us in Iran but about the religious and political problems that are inflaming the entire area.

I am concerned about two things, and perhaps the right hon. Prime Minister could comment on this. First of all, what is being done by Canada to protect these staffs, particularly the non-important personnel and people who are Canadians in these countries, such as Pakistan and Saudi Arabia and, for that matter, also Afghanistan where there are some problems? Also, what is being done in the way of emergency preparations for airlifting minority groups, such as the Baha'is, who have already been massacred in some numbers, and people of other groups such as various religious minorities in other areas? What is the Canadian government prepared to do to make it possible for these people to come to Canada or to find help?

November 21, 1979

Mr. de Corneille:

Mr. Speaker, I am wondering about the care and concern for minority groups whose members are bound to be and are, in fact, refugees at the present time or potential refugees, such as the Baha'i faith people in Iran and others who might be persecuted.
