Paul Szabo Mississauga South, ON

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 36, I am pleased to present a petition on the matter of human rights signed by a number of Canadians, including some from my own constituency of Mississauga South.

The petitioners would like to draw to the attention of the House that human rights violations continue to be rampant around the world in countries such as Indonesia. They also point out that Canada continues to be recognized as the champion of internationally accepted human rights.

The petitioners therefore call upon parliament to continue to speak out against human rights violations and to seek to bring to justice those responsible for such abuses.

Randy White Langley—Abbotsford, BC

Mr. Speaker, I have another 7,500 names, which makes it now over 21,000 names. The individuals signing this petition are informing the House that between April 14, 1997 and February 1998, a period of 10 months, four sexual assaults took place in the Abbotsford area. All four were committed by residents of the Sumas Community Correctional Centre.

They would like you to know, Mr. Speaker, that there would be fewer devastating sexual and other assaults if legislative measures would be taken.

Therefore the petitioners ask that Sumas Community Correctional Centre officials have the right to refuse violent, repeat and dangerous offenders who could pose a danger to society, and that habitual violent offenders and sexual perpetrators should not be allowed to reside at Sumas Community Correctional Centre any longer.

There are more names coming. I urge the House to follow up and follow through on this petition.

Mr. Speaker, I wish today to present to the House five petitions by hundreds of Canadians who are concerned about merchant navy veterans.

Their concerns can be basically summarized as seeking war veteran status, prisoner of war benefits, recompense for years of denial of equality, and ceremonial day recognition.

I submit these petitions today on behalf of merchant navy veterans and their concerns.

Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure today to present to the House of Commons, pursuant to Standing Order 36, a petition signed by Canadians who are very concerned that the OECD and the head of the OECD, Don Johnston, are continuing to negotiate a multilateral agreement on investment.

These Canadians are very concerned about the negative impact an MAI would have on Canada, our economy and jobs in our country in particular. They are asking the House of Commons to impose a moratorium on ratification of the MAI and to ask Don Johnston to stop negotiating something that is not wanted by anyone in the country except the large multinational American corporations that support the Liberal government.
