Mr. Cyril Keeper (Winnipeg North Centre):
Mr. Speaker, I have two petitions on what is probably the last full day of Parliament before we enter an election.
The first petition indicates that, on June 12, 1988, when the South Moresby Park Agreement was signed, the federal Government committed itself to spending $20 million or more to explore for hydrocarbons in the South Moresby Marine Park.
The Queen Charlotte region has higher earthquake activity than the San Andreas fault, and the Hecate Strait has among the roughest and most unpredictable seas in the world.
The undersigned petitioners state that they do not want any more hydrocarbon exploration activities to take place in their coastal waters, nor do the petitioners want the Government to pay for any such activities from this day on. This petition was circulated by the Greenpeace organization.
