Mr. Speaker, the government is very concerned about the events in Sudan.
We have done two things. The government has appointed Senator Lois Wilson to head the peace mission as Canada's special envoy.
As well, it has appointed John Harker, a well-known figure in labour circles in Canada in the past, to head a fact-finding commission to Sudan. He is on his way to Sudan as we speak and will be making a report to us shortly.
