Context : Presenting Petitions
Mr. Peter Julian (New Westminsterâ€”Burnaby, NDP): Mr. Speaker, it is a pleasure for me to present a petition on behalf of dozens of residents of New Westminster, Burnaby and Vancouver, British Columbia. They are joining their voices to the thousands of Canadians who have signed petitions thus far. It was initiated by the Elizabeth Fry Society of Greater Vancouver and sponsored by the Elizabeth Fry societies across Canada. The Elizabeth Fry Society in New Westminster is celebrating its 35th anniversary. All of them are calling on the Government of Canada to end discrimination against children in irregular situations.
