Pierre Pettigrew Minister of Foreign Affairs

Mr. Speaker, Canada heartily welcomes the commission's report. As hon. members know, we determined last summer that the atrocities taking place in Sudan were clearly war crimes and crimes against humanity.

In its report, the commission recommended that the Security Council immediately refer the situation in Darfur to the International Criminal Court. We fully support this recommendation. This is concrete action to help achieve a lasting resolution to this terrible conflict.

Business of Supply
Oral Question Period

3:05 p.m.

The Speaker

It is my duty, pursuant to Standing Order 81(14), to inform the House that the motion to be considered tomorrow during consideration of the business of supply is as follows:

That, in light of the numerous recent disasters affecting agricultural communities across Canada and the government's failure to deliver timely financial relief to struggling farmers, whether by the Canadian Agricultural Income Stabilization (CAIS) program or other programs, the House calls on the government to immediately drop the CAIS deposit requirement and honour the commitments it has already made to Canadian producers.

This motion, standing in the name of the hon. member for Haldimand—Norfolk, is votable.

Copies of the motion are available at the table.
