Judy Wasylycia-Leis Winnipeg North Centre, MB

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased and honoured to present a petition on behalf of a number of constituents and residents in the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The petitioners are concerned about the existence in our world today of over 35,000 nuclear weapons. They call on this government to respond to this concern and draw attention to the fact that nuclear weapons continue to pose a threat to the health and survival of human civilization and the global environment.

The petitioners refer to the statement of former secretary-general of the United Nations Boutros Boutros-Ghali indicating that the most safe, sure and swift way to deal with the threat of nuclear arms is to do away with them in every regard.

The petitioners call on this government and parliament to support the immediate initiation and conclusion by the year 2000 of an international convention which will set out a binding timetable for the abolition of all nuclear weapons.

Art Eggleton Minister of National Defence

Consideration of changes to the Aurora communications systems has not proceeded beyond the planning stage. Changes could include the replacement of the Communications Management System, CMS; modernization of the data link capability; replacement of the HF, UHF, and VHF radios; acquisition of a satellite communication capability, and the acquisition of two additional UHF radios. Although planning is underway all changes to the Aurora communications systems are subject to approval by appropriate authorities. Cost data are proprietary figures obtained in confidence from a number of individual industries. It is not a certainty that all changes will proceed or that they will be implemented at the currently estimated costs.
