Mr. Jesse Flis (Parkdale-High Park):

Mr. Speaker, I see by the clock that I only have a minute left in the debate. I would like to use that minute in putting on record a letter I received from two constituents, Helen and Mary Bumie. They say:
Dear Mr. Flis:
Thank you for helping to defeat Waddell's death bill. We have become so obsessed with death that we no longer see the beauty of life.
I am a terminally ill person and I want to live my full life allotted to me by God. May God bless you.
The hon. member says that the courts are seeking direction from Parliament. My constituents are giving the courts direction through this Parliament and through me as their representative.
