Mr. Jag Bhaduria (Markham-Whitchurch-Stouffville)

Mr. Speaker, on a point of order I inform you that I wish to withdraw my request for the delay because I have been unable to consult with counsel. It may take some time. I believe that delaying the matter would not serve the purpose.

At a future date once I have consulted with counsel I will request of you again for the point of privilege to be raised in this House. For the time being I request that this matter be withdrawn until further notice.

Mr. Richardson

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I came in after the whip sat down and therefore I was not entitled to vote, but I would like to give notice that I would have voted with my party in any event.

Mr. Simmons

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. Had the bells not stopped prematurely I would have had the triple luxury of voting for my government, voting with the Reform, and having a free vote.

Jean-Paul Marchand

Mr. Jean-Paul Marchand (Québec-Est)

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to submit a petition signed by more than 4,000 residents of my riding of Québec-Est and several other areas of the province of Quebec. Their names should be added to the 5,000 which are on petitions already submitted, and I will add 13,000 more tomorrow.

The petitioners are asking Parliament to urge the Minister of Immigration to reconsider the decision of his department to expel the Maraloï family from Vanier, and to allow this family to stay in Canada where, after three years, it is very well integrated. I wholeheartedly support this petition and I urge the government to follow up on it.

Mr. Jean-Guy Chrétien (Frontenac)

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to submit a petition from residents of the municipality of Vianney.

The undersigned, residents of the municipality of Vianney, in the county of Frontenac, wish to draw the attention of the House of Commons on the following: We humbly pray and call upon Parliament to urge the Canada Post Corporation to recognize the municipality of Vianney, made up of the village of Vianney and ranges 1 to 4, so that our addresses could be Vianney and not Saint-Ferdinand or Bernierville, while keeping the same postal code, G0N 1N0.

Jay Hill

Reform

Mr. Jay Hill (Prince George-Peace River)

Madam Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 36, I have the privilege to present a petition on behalf of over 1,000 constituents from the Prince George-Peace River riding.

They call upon the House of Commons to repeal Bill C-17, the most recent amendment to part III of the Criminal Code.

These citizens believe that gun control legislation was sufficient prior to the Bill C-17 amendments and that the bill has placed undue restrictions on law abiding gun owners instead of focusing on the punishment of those who criminally misuse firearms. I am very pleased to support the petition.
