moved for leave to introduce Bill C-372, An Act to amend the Canada Post Corporation Act (property).

Mr. Speaker, I am very pleased today to introduce Bill C-372, An Act to amend the Canada Post Corporation Act (property), which will force the Canada Post Corporation to follow the same procedure as the departments when disposing of surplus assets. The reason for this is clear: to prevent the kind of transactions that the Canada Post Corporation is trying to carry out in my riding by selling property to a private company.

I would ask the Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities to give parliamentarians the opportunity to debate this issue before authorizing any transaction involving the mail sorting facility on the Lachine Canal.
