Mr. Marcel R. Tremblay (Quebec-Est):

Madam Speaker, this week the Department of Consumer and Corporate Affairs released its latest quarterly report about credit card charges. In this report consumers are warned about the cost involved in using credit cards in order to help them select and use credit cards wisely.
As the summer season approaches, consumers should also remember to take additional precautions when using their credit cards and always make sure they are kept in a safe place. A person's holidays may be ruined if his or her cards are stolen, and in the end, all consumers pay for these thefts.
I would therefore urge all Canadian consumers to get a copy of this publication at their nearest Consumer and Corporate Affairs office. Don't leave home without it.
