The petitioners from various places in the province of British Columbia, from the north to the south to the coastal regions, are petitioning Parliament to repeal Bill C-22 and Bill C-91 so that Canadians will have the full benefit of lower priced generic drugs and that provincial and private drug plans can serve Canadians without being forced to charge higher fees and provide less coverage.

SERIAL KILLER CARDS


Mr. Ken James (Sarnia-Lambton) Mr. Speaker, I rise today to present four petitions pursuant to Standing Order 36 which have been certified as being correct in form and content. Hundreds of petitioners from across my riding of Sarnia-Lambton call upon Parliament to enact legislation to prohibit the importation, distribution, sale and manufacture of serial killer cards. As well, they say that producers of these cards should be advised that if their product is destined for Canada it will be seized and destroyed.


VIOLENCE

PC

René John Soetens

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Rene Soetens (Ontario):

Mr. Speaker, I rise with pleasure to present this petition pursuant to Standing Order 36.

It is submitted by a number of residents from the town of Ajax and has a number of clauses dealing with the incidence of violence against women and children and the many problems experienced by these individuals because of that violence. I therefore submit their recommendations.

They humbly pray and call upon Parliament to accept legislation designed to eliminate violence against women and children; encourage and support women to report incidents of assault or abuse; provide assistance and support for women reporting assault or abuse; provide relief and support to women as mothers to protect their children; emphasize the need for abuser rehabilitation; concentrate special effort on the training of police, lawyers, court workers, and judges to help them become knowledgeable about women and child abuse; and to focus public attention on this very important and long ignored problem.
