Presenting petitions on Bill C-27

Private Members’ Business

Mr. Peter Julian (New Westminster—Burnaby, NDP): Madam Speaker, it is my pleasure to add more petitioners to the thousands of Canadians who are demanding that the government withdraw Bill C-27.

I would like to pay tribute to JoAnne and Dale Lauber and all of the activists involved at the BC Retired Teachers' Association who have been approaching members of Parliament and collecting signatures. These teachers have given all their lives to the community and continue to give to better our country.

All of these petitioners, the thousands who have signed thus far, are saying that given that the government actually promised that it would not gut defined benefit plans, Bill C-27 should be withdrawn because it would jeopardize the retirement income security of Canadians who have negotiated defined benefit plans as a form of deferred wages.
