Mr. Thomas Siddon (Richmond-South Delta):
Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on behalf of the more than 100,000 Canadians who suffer from the serious or crippling effects of kidney disease. I believe this motion will be supported by all members of this House. Whereas the month of March has been proclaimed by His Excellency the Governor General as National Kidney Month, and in view of the outstanding work being done by the volunteers of the Kidney Foundation of Canada through the provision of early detection programs, support for dialysis centres and organ transplant patients, and scientific research into the causes and cures of kidney disease, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bruce-Grey (Mr. Gurbin):
That this House commends those countless volunteers and medical specialists from across Canada who offer hope and even miracles to those who bear the burden of kidney disease, and further, this House urges all Canadians to support the work of the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
