Mr. Speaker, the next petition has a total of 69 petitioners.

The undersigned citizens of Canada draw to the attention of the House that dangerous sex offenders and pedophiles should be locked up for life, that statutory release should be revoked, that stiffer sentences should be imposed on violent offenders, and that violent criminals should serve their full sentence and have time added for bad behaviour.

Therefore the petitioners call on Parliament to return the rights to the citizens of Canada from the criminals and ask that Parliament honour these requests.

Mr. Speaker, the second petition is about the subject of the family.

The petitioners request that Parliament oppose any legislation that would redefine family, including the provision of marriage and family benefits to those who are not related by ties of blood, marriage or adoption, as marriage is defined as the legal union between a man and a woman.

Ed Harper Simcoe Centre, ON

Mr. Speaker, the third petition involves section 718.2 of Bill C-41.

The petitioners are extremely concerned about including the phrase sexual orientation for the first time in federal legislation. They believe this sets a dangerous precedent for society.

The final petition is on the subject of sexual orientation. The petitioners request that the Government of Canada not amend the Canadian Human Rights Act to include the phrase sexual orientation.

The petitioners fear that such an inclusion could lead to homosexuals receiving the same benefits and societal privileges as married people.
