Context : Presenting Electronic Petitions
Mr. Peter Julian (New Westminsterâ€”Burnaby, NDP): Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to present an electronic petition signed by over 500 people from across the country, Canadians from every single province and territory. This petition was sponsored by Colleen Dunbar from Richmond, British Columbia.
The petitioners call upon the government to increase commitment and investment, financial and otherwise, to the development of renewable resources and a clean energy future for future Canadians and for generations to come. The petition also includes concerns about climate change having a further detrimental impact on Canada's food and water system, and the importance to take proactive measures to protect our soil, rivers, lakes and oceans.
