Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ken Atkinson (St. Catharines):

Mr. Speaker, I have petitions with thousands of signatures from the St. Catharines-Niagara area supporting the efforts of Mrs. Debbie Mahaffy and her quest to have the importation of killer cards seized at the Canada-U.S. border and to stop their distribution in Canada.
The signers of this petition abhor the crimes of violence against persons and believe that killer trading cards offer nothing positive for children or adults to admire or emulate but rather contribute to violence.
They call on the Parliament of Canada to amend the laws of Canada to prohibit the importation, distribution, sale and manufacture of killer cards in law and to advise producers of killer cards that their product, if destined for Canada, will be seized and destroyed.
Mr. Duane Derreck was responsible for all of these petitions being distributed.
