COMMONS DEBATES — July 11, 1980
RELIGIOUS FAITHS OF SUCCESSORS TO QUEEN—MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
Mr. Hal Herbert (Vaudreuil): Madam Speaker, I rise to present a motion under Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, the urgency being the fact that the British Parliament is about to consider a matter affecting this country.
I move, seconded by the hon. member for York South-Weston (Mrs. Appolloni):
That the new and first made-in-Canada constitution reinforce its insistence on religious liberty by including the desire of the Canadian people that successors to our present Canadian Queen may be an adherent not only of the Protestant but also of the Catholic or other religious faiths.
Madam Speaker: Such a motion requires the unanimous consent of the House. Is there unanimous consent?
Some hon. Members: Agreed.
Some hon. Members: No.
