Finally, Mr. Speaker, I have petitions to present representing millions of Canadians who are saying that taxes are too high and it is time to bring them down.

I think all Canadians have said that it is time the government started to listen to the concerns of grassroots Canadians.

Yvon Godin Acadie—Bathurst, NB

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour today of presenting two petitions.

The first is signed by some one hundred people from Manitoba and the second by some fifty from New Brunswick.

The petitioners are calling for a stop to be put to the opening of private hospitals and the return of federal funding for health care, an immediate increase in federal funding for health care to 25% and the implementation of a national home care program and national drug plan.

Clearly, these petitioners do not believe in the kind of health care people have in the United States, and this is mentioned in the petition.

Mr. Speaker, I want to present a petition signed by hundreds of Canadians who are worried about the underfunded Canadian medicare system.

The Liberal government's underfunding has led to a shortage of nurses, hospital beds and emergency room spaces. They want the government to fund medicare up to 25%.

Mr. Speaker, my petition is also on the matter of health care. I am delighted that the Minister of Health is in the precincts.

People from Moose Jaw are very concerned that the federal government is paying only 13.5 cents on every dollar for health care. If this is not corrected, we are on our way to two tier American style health care in Canada. There is also concern expressed about bill 11. We know what the good voters in Edmonton thought about that earlier this week.

The petitioners call upon parliament to stop for profit hospitals and restore federal funding for health care. I am pleased to present the petition on behalf of the residents of Moose Jaw.
