Mr. Doug Fee (Red Deer):

Mr. Speaker, at the request of several members of the House I would like to table the official score sheet of the hockey game between MPs and pages last night.

Several members have expressed interest. Some were not able to play because of age, physical condition or duties and I know they would be interested in knowing that this tradition is continued. It was a very interesting and hard-fought game.

Mr. Speaker, if it was not for a referee from Hansard who was a little blind and missed my goal in the third period we would have tied the game.

Suzanne Fortin-Duplessis (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for External Relations; Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of State (Indian Affairs and Northern Development))

Progressive Conservative

Mrs. Suzanne Duplessis (Louis-Hebert):

Mr. Speaker, I have a petition to the honourable Elouse of Commons in Parliament assembled.

The undersigned residents of the metropolitan area of Quebec City humbly sheweth:

That the Miranda family should have Canadian resident status. The family consists of Mrs. Carolina Miranda, her son Samael, and little Gonzalo Ignacio who was born here in Canada.

Mrs. Miranda and her son Samael are from Guatemala. Although under an agreement, Guatemalan nationals are able to return to their country, it has been confirmed by the Quebec-Central America Committee, Amnesty International and other organizations that the human rights situation in Guatemala is not improving.

Mrs. Miranda is afraid her son Samael will be kidnapped and used as a hostage, to try to flush out his father, Armanda Castillo, a Guatemalan who disappeared several years ago. He is apparently still alive and being sought by people who, since then, have killed two of his brothers, Samael's uncles.

Considering that Samael has adjusted to life in Quebec, plays hockey and speaks French like all little Quebecers, and considering that Gonzalo Ignacio was bom in Canada and thus has Canadian citizenship, your petitioners humbly pray and call upon Parliament to consider this a humanitarian case and keep this family in Canada.

Mr. Ronald J. Duhamel (St. Boniface):

Mr. Speaker, the petitioners who signed my first petition ask the government to delay the decision with respect to the merger of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council with the Canada Council.

They point out that Canada's greatest challenges today are in the area of social problems, whether we talk about

the deficit, the debt, poverty, unemployment, social assistance, food banks and many others. They simply ask the government to defer the decision and study it again. If it then feels this is a good decision then it should go forward. However, to date the government has proven no savings and no increased effectiveness, and therefore that is their request.

Mr. Speaker, in my second petition I have a group of petitioners who ask Parliament to ensure that the CRTC makes absolutely certain that the use of foul language, abuse and violence on radio and television does not occur. They point out that it goes contrary to their efforts to raise their families in a particular way. They also emphasize that it is not necessary to use foul language to entertain in English or in French.

Mr. Len Taylor (The Battlefords-Meadow Lake):

Mr. Speaker, I have the duty and privilege of presenting a petition pursuant to Standing Order 36 signed by residents of my constituency from the communities of Hafford, Goodsoil, Pierceland, and Blaine Lake, Saskatchewan.

The petitioners acknowledge that studies have shown a link between violence in entertainment and desensitization to violence in our society. They note that part of this culture of violence is a serial killer board game which has as its point murdering defenceless children and adults.

The petitioners state that the laws of Canada do not deal with material such as this and they call upon Parliament to consider amending the Criminal Code of Canada so that violent and degrading material, such as the serial killer board game, can be kept from being distributed in Canada.
