Mr. Speaker, it gives me great pleasure to present a petition from the residents of Scarborough, who join thousands of others working to protect the Rouge Valley in Scarborough as a unique and precious natural area.

Protecting the endangered wildlife and wilderness areas in this Rouge Valley is ili the national interest, so we join with the federal Minister of the Environment (Mr. McMillan), Save the Rouge Valley System, and the Coalition of Scarborough Community Associations in expressing support for saving the valley, and call on the Government to work with the Government of Ontario to establish the Rouge River Valley as a Canadian heritage land or a provincial park.
