Hon. John Wise (Elgin):

Mr. Speaker, I have the pleasant responsibility and duty today to table two petitions signed by the citizens of St. Thomas in The Constituency of Elgin.

The first petition reflects the opinions of my constituents regarding the increase in violent crime that we are presently encountering and also the very light sentences that are being handed out, in particular to repeat offenders. I sincerely hope that the Minister of Justice (Mr. MacGuigan) will give serious consideration to the opinions of my constituents.

Mr. Speaker, my second petition is signed by the citizens of St. Thomas in the Constituency of Elgin. This petition, like the first one, reflects the opinions of my constituents regarding the harmful effects of pornography on our society.

Mr. Stan Darling (Parry Sound-Muskoka):

Mr. Speaker, I have a petition to the honourable the House of Commons in Parliament assembled. The petition of the undersigned residents of Morrison Ward, Town of Gravenhurst, in the Province of Ontario, who now avail themselves of their ancient and undoubted right thus to present a grievance common to your petitioners in the certain assurance that your honourable House will therefore provide a remedy, humbly sheweth that at mileage 102.98 of the Newmarket Subdivision of the Canada National Railway, intersecting the Sparrow Lake Road "C", two persons have been killed by trains while crossing the tracks in motorized vehicles and that motorists believe that visibility of approaching CNR trains is made difficult by the topographical nature of the crossing.

Wherefore the undersigned, your petitioners, humbly pray and call upon Parliament to enact legislation for the installation of railway crossing lights at the aforementioned intersection. And as in duty bound your petitioners will ever pray.

Mr. Speaker, it is my duty and pleasure to present a petition signed by a number of my constituents in the Village of Fenelon Falls in the Township of Fenelon.

Mr. Ron Stewart (Simcoe South):

Mr. Speaker, the petition of the undersigned residents of the Province of Ontario who now avail themselves of their ancient and undoubted right thus to present a grievance common to your petitioners in the certain assurance that your honourable House will therefore provide a remedy humbly sheweth that qualified Quebec pipeline welders have been working throughout the rest of Canada while the actions of the Government of the Province of Quebec are impeding the ability of non-Quebec resident welders to obtain work in that province.

Wherefore we humbly ask for your assistance in seeking redress for these grievances which violate our rights as guaranteed by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. And as in duty bound your petitioners will ever pray.

Daniel James Macdonnell Heap

New Democratic Party

Mr. Dan Heap (Spadina):

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to present a petition from some 1,500 residents of the City of Toronto who petition this Parliament to recognize that Canadians recognize family reunion as an integral part of Canadian immigration policy, that sons and daughters over 21 years of age are not recognized as part of the family for purposes of immigration, and that for many Canadian immigrant families unmarried sons and daughters do not cease to be part of their families simply because they attain the age of 21, resulting in the fact that many Canadian immigrant families are denied reunion and are suffering hardship.

Wherefore the undersigned, your petitioners, humbly pray and call upon Parliament to direct the Minister of Employment and Immigration (Mr. Roberts) to amend the present immigration regulation so that a sole remaining unmarried son or daughter of a Canadian resident shall be admissible on the same basis as minor children. And as in duty bound your petitioners will ever pray.
