Rose-Marie Ur Lambton—Kent—Middlesex, ON

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 36 I am honoured to present this petition signed by residents of Grand Bend, Forest and Stoney Creek. They note that all studies show how the manganese based MMT in gasoline has been proven to foul emission control devices resulting in higher smog levels which will devastate our Kyoto climate change commitments. They call upon parliament to ban the use of the additive MMT.

Paul Szabo Mississauga South, ON

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to present a petition signed by a number of Canadians including from my own riding of Mississauga South.

In this year celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the petitioners would like to bring to the attention of the House that human rights violations continue in many countries around the world, including Indonesia. They also point out that Canada is internationally respected for its defence of universal human rights.

The petitioners therefore call upon the government to continue its efforts to speak out against countries that tolerate violations of human rights and to do whatever is possible to bring to justice those responsible for such abuses.

Nelson Riis Kamloops, BC

Mr. Speaker, I have a number of petitions today. There are thousands of people from Kamloops, British Columbia, who are fed up with the tax system and are just generally angry. They have all sorts of reasons why they feel that way and I suspect those reasons are known. They are simply asking the government to undertake a fair tax reform so that people can pay their fair share as opposed to most Canadians being exploited by an unfair tax system.

Nelson Riis Kamloops, BC

Mr. Speaker, again there are thousands of people from Kamloops who are concerned about cruelty to animals. They are really upset that people who are cruel to animals seem to never get what they consider a decent sentence. They figure judges are too soft on people who are mean to animals. They point out a whole number of specific examples of this that are just quite pathetic. They are asking the government to take this issue more seriously.

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 36, I have two petitions which are signed by 375 residents of my riding of Oxford. Both petitions ask that parliament enact legislation such as Bill C-225 to define in statute that a marriage can only be entered into between a single male and a single female.
