PETITIONS

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

Madam Speaker, in this first instance I have petitioners who ask the government to remove the GST on books and learning materials. They point out that it has hurt students, artists, publishers and the industry generally. They also point out that it does not contribute to increased productivity of our society in general. The petitioners feel it is counterproductive to the development of Canadian society.

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

Madam Speaker, in this other petition the petitioners ask Parliament to ensure that the CRTC carefully regulates the use of foul language in radio and television programming.

The petitioners also ask that the whole aspect of violence be examined carefully. They point out that it is not necessary to do that in order to entertain or inform, whether it be in English, French or any other language.

In the latter case, I have petitioners who are asking Parliament to ensure that proper language is used on radio and television. They also ask Parliament to ensure that acts of violence are not allowed on radio and

television because they say it often goes against what they are trying to do in raising their families.
