Mr. Darrel Stinson (Okanagan—Shuswap, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, the final three petitions are also from my constituents. The petitioners no longer feel safe in their homes or on the streets of their cities due to the many violent offenders being released from jail to recommit crimes such as murder.

Therefore, the petitioners request that Parliament bring back the death penalty for first and second degree murder.

Mr. Darrel Stinson (Okanagan—Shuswap, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to present five petitions from my constituents of Okanagan--Shuswap. Although the first two petitions have been passed by the House, my constituents remain opposed to the same sex marriage legislation.

The petitioners request that Parliament use all possible legislative and administrative measures, including invoking section 33 of the charter if necessary, to preserve and protect the current definition of marriage as between one man and one woman.

Mr. Darrel Stinson (Okanagan—Shuswap, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, for the past 12 years provincial attorneys general, premiers, child advocacy groups, the police and countless other agencies have begged to have the age of sexual consent raised to 16.

Could the justice minister explain why he thinks he is right and all these other groups are wrong?

Mr. Darrel Stinson (Okanagan—Shuswap, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, last Friday the city of Vernon in my riding lost a respected member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in the line of duty in a tragic boating accident on Okanagan Lake.

Constable Jean Minguy was a 23 year veteran of the force, who passed away less than seven months after the Vernon detachment also lost in the line of duty RCMP auxiliary officer Glen Evely, killed when the police cruiser in which he was a passenger was hit by a stolen vehicle.

Tomorrow many dignitaries will take part in a full regimental funeral to help the Vernon detachment carry this terrible load of sadness and loss.

Here in Ottawa, many also join me in honouring both Constable Minguy and all the members of the RCMP. To each of them and their families, we express our thanks and extend our heartfelt sympathy.
