Mr. Speaker, as we meet here today the massacre in Rwanda continues while waves of people cross the border into Tanzania's refugee camps.
It is impossible for the international community to remain unmoved at the sight of such human tragedy in Rwanda. The International Red Cross has just asked for United Nations intervention to secure and protect sources of water for the refugees. At the same time the Security Council needs to support the Secretary-General and provide the troops necessary to protect innocent civilians.
The Government of Canada could play a leading role in coming to the rescue of so many, relieving their misery and preventing further human suffering.
