SENATE DEBATES — January 14, 1981
MINORITY GROUPS—SUPPORT OF GOVERNMENT AMENDMENTS TO PROPOSED RESOLUTION
Hon. Peter Bosa: Is the Leader of the Government aware of the enthusiastic support with which the constitutional amendments have been received by the minority groups with respect to the inclusion in those amendments of a reference to multiculturalism?
Some Hon. Senators: Hear, hear.
Hon. Raymond J. Perrault (Leader of the Government): A number of representations have been received from people in minority groups indicating their great enthusiasm for the changes.
The honourable senator may have received other messages which he may wish to communicate to the Senate concerning the enthusiastic support coming from the multicultural community.
Senator Bosa: Perhaps I will mention them in my next speech.
