I have the floor now, and while I am always delighted to hear the hon.
member for Vancouver North, the present moment is not the time or the place. I suggest that the Secretary of State for External Affairs should explain why this Canadian-United States arrangement to permit United States forces to come into our territory should not be drawn up in the form, of a regional agreement and submitted to the united nations. I do not mean the bill only; I mean the whole agreement.
Mr. ST. LAURENT: Will the hon. member permit me to interrupt? It was not drawn up in the form of an agreement, but it was in the form of statements made simultaneously here and in Washington, and the statements were communicated to the secretary general of the united nations for communication by him to all the members of the united nations.
