Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
Iran

Hon. Irwin Cotler (Mount Royal, Lib.):
 
Mr. Speaker, there have been discussions among the parties and if you were to seek it, I believe you would find unanimous consent for the following motion. I move:
 
That, on the one-year anniversary of the fraudulent Iranian election, this House expresses its solidarity with the people of Iran; condemns the loss of life, beatings, and unjust imprisonment of those who peacefully protested; supports the democratic movement in Iran; welcomes the new UN sanctions against the Iranian regime; calls upon the regime to cease and desist from the illegal pursuit of nuclear weapons in violation of UN Security Council Resolutions and international law; and expresses its hope that the Iranian people will soon live in peace, security, and freedom.
 
The Speaker: 
 
Does the hon. member for Mount Royal have the unanimous consent of the House to propose this motion?
 
Some hon. members:

Agreed.
 
The Speaker:

The House has heard the terms of the motion. Is it the pleasure of the House to adopt the motion?
 
Some hon. members:

Agreed.
 
(Motion agreed to)
