Libby Davies Vancouver East, BC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-416, an act to provide for adequate, accessible and affordable housing for Canadians

Mr. Speaker, it is my honour to rise in the House today to introduce this bill. The purpose of the bill is to respect the dignity and worth of all women, children and men in Canada by protecting their human rights through the provision and secure enjoyment of adequate, accessible and affordable housing.

My bill is a response to the critical needs of the close to five million Canadians who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and who have a right to safe and affordable housing.

The bill spells out that every individual has the right to shelter, a safe and healthy environment, security of tenure, and protection from sudden and excessive rent increases.

The bill would require the development of a national housing strategy in partnership with federal, provincial and municipal governments, housing organizations, first nation communities and aboriginal organizations across the country.

I thank the many people who helped make the bill possible. To achieve this objective we must see that the bill is brought forward and that a national, fully funded strategy is developed to make housing a realizable human right in Canada.

Peter Adams Peterborough, ON

Mr. Speaker, I rise to present a petition from citizens of the Peterborough area interested in seeing kidney research become even more effective in Canada.

These citizens know that the Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes, our national institute under which kidney research is carried out, does wonderful work. I have met with Dr. Diane Finegood who is the director of that fine institute.

My constituents believe the institute would be more effective and reach out more effectively to the general public if the word kidney were included in its title.

The citizens call on parliament to encourage the Canadian Institutes of Health Research to explicitly include kidney research as one of the institutes of its system to be named the institute of kidney and urinary tract diseases.
