Raynald Blais moved, — That the following be reported to the House at the earliest opportunity:
Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2), the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans calls on the government to:
a) intensify representations to the European Parliament and implement a widespread educational campaign in Europe to counteract the inflammatory campaigns of misinformation against the seal hunt waged by abolitionist groups.
b) do everything in its power to ensure that hunters and the seal industry have the best conditions possible for the 2009 hunting season.
Debate arose thereon.
