Download PDF for this date

The House of Commons today unanimously condemned the United Nations General Assembly resolution linking. Zionism to racism. External Affairs Minister Allan MacEachen said that Canada might, as a result of the UN vote, withdraw its support from a 1977 anti-racist congress in Vienna and the UN sponsored “Decade against Racism.” He added, however, that Canada will not consider reducing foreign aid efforts. Canada voted against the anti-Zionist resolution.
