The Speaker

I would remind the hon. member for Sackville—Musquodoboit Valley—Eastern Shore, and indeed all hon. members, that the rules require that when members speak at this stage on a bill they give a succinct explanation of the purpose of the bill. The hon. member may have been succinct in his remarks only because the Chair cut him off.

I am not sure that all of the remarks were an explanation of the bill, but we appreciate his enthusiasm.

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to table two petitions. The first bears the signatures of 26 people from the Montreal area. They support the rural route mail couriers, who often earn less than minimum wage, because the right to collective bargaining is denied them.

The petitioners call upon parliament to repeal subsection 13(5) of the Canada Post Corporation Act.

Mr. Speaker, the second petition is signed by 170 people from the Montreal area, in support of Algerian refugee claimants. These claimants are worried by the prospect of being returned to their country, although many have been here for some time.

They are calling upon parliament to look into the possibility of a generalized regularization and of reinstating the moratorium on returning people to Algeria.
