Ms. Margaret Mitchell (Vancouver East):

Mr. Speaker, 1 have the honour to present a very important petition today from quite a number of families who are very concerned about child care. They state that whereas families throughout Canada need high quality, available, affordable child care services, and repeated recommendations have been made that these services must be available for families, and that the Government of Canada must introduce legislation containing

national objectives and appropriate mechanisms for the development of a comprehensive non-profit child care system accessible to all families throughout Canada, and whereas the child care Act proposed by the Government contains neither national objectives nor the necessary funding arrangements and will not ensure that families have access to high quality child care, therefore, in the best interests of young children, women and families, the petitioners request very strongly that Parliament withdraw the child care Act forthwith.

Derek Nigel Ernest Blackburn

Mr. Derek Blackburn (Brant):

Mr. Speaker, 1 too rise under the provisions of Standing Order 106 to present a petition similar to the one just presented.

It is signed by several persons from southwestern Ontario who find the Government's Bill on child care to be woefully lacking in national standards. Finally, they state that since the proposed child care Act is not in the best interests of young children, women or families in Canada they call upon the Government to withdraw the Bill immediately.

Rodney Edward Murphy (Whip of the N.D.P.)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Rod Murphy (Churchill):

Mr. Speaker, 1 also have a petition concerning the issue of child care. People who have signed the petition indicate their concern that families throughout Canada need high quality, available, affordable child care services. They believe that the legislation which is before the House of Commons at the present time does not provide that.

They state that the legislation contains neither national objectives nor necessary funding arrangements, that it will not ensure that families have access to high quality child care, and therefore the interests of young children, women and families of Canada will not be met. The petitioners humbly call upon Parliament to withdraw the child care legislation forthwith.

David Orlikow

New Democratic Party

Mr. David Orlikow (Winnipeg North):

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to present three petitions. The first is signed by residents of the City of Winnipeg, and the Towns of Fort Whyte, Oak Bluff and Sanford, towns in Manitoba. The second one is signed by residents of Winnipeg and the Town of Kamerno. The third is signed by residents of Medicine Hat, Alberta.

The three petitions state that the Prime Minister (Mr. Mulroney) promised that in the course of his bilateral trade negotiations Canadian sovereignty would not be compromised and that the proposed trade agreement would deny Canada the policy freedom to determine its own economic future and undermine our ability to build a society distinct from that of the U.S.

Therefore the petitioners humbly pray and call upon Parliament to dissolve and allow the people of Canada the opportunity to accept or reject the proposed free trade agreement during a national general election.

Mr. Speaker, I have another petition signed by residents of Ontario who live in Sault Ste. Marie, Gravenhurst, Huntsville and Dundas. They state that whereas it has been repeatedly recommended that to make child care services available for families the Government of Canada must introduce legislation containing national objectives and appropriate mechanisms for the development of comprehensive non-profit child care system accessible to all families throughout Canada, therefore the undersigned humbly pray and call upon Parliament to withdraw the child care Act forthwith.
