New Democratic Party

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.
