June 15, 1987

Mr. J. Lawrence:

That is right. As presently interpreted by the court-and that is a court ruling of the Federal Court of Appeal. It is a very high court.

I wanted to put that on the record to ensure that Hon. Members understand that evidently the CRTC is happy with Clause 12 as it now stands and advises against any amendment. The CRTC has considerable experience in regulating Bell Canada. If the CRTC is happy with that clause, I for one am prepared to accept it and to pass judgment on it by voting against the amendment.

1. On Wednesday, February 18 (budget day) and on Thursday, February 19, 1987, did Radio Canada International broadcast the wrong tape or network feed instead of "The World at Six" newscast at 0000 hours Greenwich mean time (1900 hours eastern standard time) and, if so, who was responsible?

2. Has the person responsible been disciplined and (a) if so, in what way (b) if not, for what reason?

Hon. Allan Lawrence (Durham-Northumberland):

Mr. Speaker, getting back to the subject of alleged transgressions of Canadian sovereignty by undersea vessels in the Arctic, I wonder if the Secretary of State for External Affairs could tell us, first, if the Government actually knows the routes taken by both Soviet and American submarines in the Arctic? Second, if the answer to the first question is in the affirmative, could he tell the House if there have actually been transgressions of Canadian sovereignty by Soviet and American submarines?

Mr. Lawrence:

Mr. Speaker, is the result of that vote because some Members voted twice, or are some of the Members being counted as voting once? I really think there should be some clarification.

October 22, 1985

Hon. Allan Lawrence (Durham-Northumberland):

Mr. Speaker, my supplementary question is on the same matter but it is directed to the Solicitor General. Have the allegations contained in the Bahamian royal commission report about the Canadian banks being deeply involved in laundering drug trafficking funds been drawn to the attention of the Solicitor General? If so, has there been a response from him or the Canadian Government as yet?
