moved for leave to introduce Bill C-439, An Act to amend the Hazardous Products Act (products made with dog or cat fur).

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise today to introduce my private member's bill, An Act to amend the Hazardous Products Act (products made with dog or cat fur), which has been seconded by my colleague from Dartmouth—Cole Harbour.

While products that use dog and cat fur are banned in countries all over the world, these products remain legal and can be imported, exported and sold in Canada without labels.

I hope that all members of the House will support the bill to ban this deplorable trade.
