Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to present two petitions today, The first petition is on the issue of stem cells. The petitioners would like to draw to the attention of the House that Canadians support ethical stem cell research which has already shown encouraging potential to provide cures and therapies for the illnesses and diseases of Canadians.

The petitioners therefore call upon Parliament to focus its legislative support on adult stem cell research to find those cures and therapies.

Mr. Speaker, the second petition is on the subject matter of the definition of marriage. The petitioners would like to draw to the attention of the House that marriage is the best foundation for families and for the raising of children and also that marriage is the exclusive jurisdiction of Parliament.

The petitioners therefore call upon Parliament to pass legislation to recognize the institution of marriage in federal law as being the lifelong union of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others.
