PETITIONS

LIB

Sergio Marchi

Liberal

Mr. Sergio Marchi (York West):

Madam Speaker, I take this opportunity to present today a petition collected by a constituent in my riding of York West whose name is Robert Swannick. He lives in the south part of the riding.

He has circulated a petition among friends and neighbours urging the government and Parliament to call a referendum on the whole question of bilingualism and to allow the voices of Canadians to be heard on this very important issue.

According to the petitioners, the acceptance or rejection of the proposed amendments should be determined by a majority vote of the total votes cast in the whole of Canada, together with a majority vote in the majority of provinces with the territories being given the status of one province.

Lyle Stuart Kristiansen

Mr. Lyle Kristiansen (Kootenay West-Revelstoke):

Madam Speaker, I rise pursuant to Standing Order 36 with two petitions, which are the latest in a series of petitions presented by me and my colleagues in the New Democratic Parly.

The two petitions are signed by approximately 75 Canadians from the Ottawa-Hull area. Without going into all the formalities because the House is familiar with them, the petitioners call on Parliament to press the government to finally, after some seven years, move to proclaim parts II and III of the Parliamentary Employment and Staff Relations Act.

Madam Speaker, the petitioners ask for a commitment to a comprehensive national health care program. They want the discontinuation of current freezes and reductions in the

funding formula for health and post-secondary education.

They want a reaffirmation of the commitment to the guarantees of the Canada Health Act to Canadians of universal, accessible, comprehensive and portable health care delivered by public non-profit means and free of user fees or extra billing.

They want the withdrawal of Bill C-91 that gives brand name drugs a 20-year market monopoly. They want provisions for the production of low-priced generic substitutions.

They ask for the preservation of medicare in Canada.
