June 10, 1993

Mr. Ian Waddell (Port Moody-Coquitlam):

Madam Speaker, I am particularly pleased to make this statement seeing that you, a former actress, are in the chair. I want to extend the congratulations of the House to my old friend, Brent Carver, who this week received a Tony Award for his role in the Broadway musical Kiss of a Spider Woman.

Brent is from Cranbrook, British Columbia. I first met him in the Arts Club of Vancouver. I want to congratulate also Garth Drabinsky, Live Entertainment of Canada Inc., Des McAnuff on his director's award and Adrea Martin on her best feature actress award.

These people were probably bom talented, but I would remind the House that Brent and the others have been beneficiaries of Canadian government public investment in the arts, in theatre and in films.

In accepting her award Adrea Martin thanked her family, and I quote, "for giving me my roots and my hairdresser, Gary, for restoring them to their natural colour".

We thank them all for their Canadian roots. It was a great week for Canadian talent in New York.

Mr. Ian Waddell (Port Moody-Coquitlam):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 36, I wish to present a petition from my constituents.

Twenty-five people have signed this petition and it has been duly certified. My constituents call for the government to enact legislation for a referendum of the people of Canada binding upon Parliament to accept or reject two official languages, English and French, for the government and the people of Canada, the acceptance or the rejection of the proposed amendments to be determined by a majority of the total votes cast in the whole of Canada together with the majority in a majority of provinces, the territories being considered as one province.

I am duty bound to present this petition.

Mr. Ian Waddell (Port Moody-Coquitlam):

Mr. Speaker, the second petition is from a number of people on the Lamont and Spencer case which the Prime Minister mentioned today.

They call upon the Prime Minister to return Christine Lamont and David Spencer to Canada, not to serve 28 years in Canadian jails or to wait for a treaty with Brazil, but to ask for the expulsion of these people right now according to Brazilian law. I am pleased to present this petition.

Mr. Waddell:

Madam Speaker, we would be prepared to give our consent provided that either the minister or the parliamentary secretary indicate that they would take seriously the goal of putting proceeds of crime money toward crime prevention in this country, which I think we all agree to in this House because a parliamentary committee, the justice committee, was unanimous.

If the minister or the parliamentary secretary could give some indication I would be pleased to give unanimous consent.
