Mr. Peter MacKay (Pictou—Antigonish—Guysborough, PC)

Mr. Speaker, I rise with pleasure to table a petition pursuant to Standing Order 36 on behalf of the constituents of Pictou—Antigonish—Guysborough, specifically the Sisters of Bethany in Antigonish.
The petition states the position of the group, which opposes the Multilateral Agreement on Investment. The petitioners caution the government on the mode in which the negotiations have proceeded and request that a moratorium be placed on the ratification of the MAI until full public hearings have been held across the country so that Canadians may have an opportunity to partake in the discussions and put their opinions forward.
