Mr. Speaker, I have four petitions to present to the House today, containing approximately 170 names, in support of having Steven Truscott's case reviewed.

The petitioners are calling upon Parliament to ask the Minister of Justice to undertake a thorough investigation of his case and within a reasonable time period to ensure that justice is served and restored to this gentleman.

Paul Steckle Huron—Bruce, ON

Mr. Speaker, I rise on behalf of many constituents and petitioners who have submitted their names on paper supporting the petitions that we have been hearing about this afternoon.

The petitioners are calling upon Parliament to ask the Minister of Justice, who has now appointed Mr. Kaufman, to review the case of Mr. Truscott. This terrible miscarriage of justice occurred within my riding boundaries.

I stand with the petitioners in support of this issue this afternoon and I, on their behalf, submit these names to Parliament today.

Paul Szabo Mississauga South, ON

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to present a petition on the subject matter of stem cell research. The petition has been signed by a number of Canadians, including from my own riding of Mississauga South.

The petitioners would like to draw to the attention of the House that Canadians do support ethical stem cell research which has already shown encouraging potential to provide cures and therapies for the illnesses and diseases of Canadians.

They also point out that non-embryonic stem cells, which are also known as adult stem cells, have shown significant research progress without the immune rejection or ethical problems associated with embryonic stem cells.

The petitioners therefore call upon Parliament to focus its legislative support on adult stem cell research to find the cures and therapies for the illnesses and diseases of Canadians.
