Madam Speaker, the second petition draws to the attention of Parliament that Parliament voted to preserve the traditional definition of marriage, and that a recent court decision has redefined marriage contrary to the wishes of Parliament. The petitioners are concerned that this is not a way for democracy to be reflected in Canada.

They call upon Parliament to immediately hold a renewed debate on the definition of marriage to reaffirm, as it did in 1999, its commitment to all necessary steps to preserve marriage as the union of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others.

Madam Speaker, I would like to present this petition today on behalf of some of my constituents.

Whereas, human life at the pre-born stage is not protected in Canadian society, therefore, the petitioners pray that Parliament act immediate to extend protection to the unborn child by amending the Criminal Code to extend the same protection enjoyed by born human beings to unborn human beings.

Madam Speaker, I apologize to you and to my colleagues for doing this in such a delayed way, but I presented a report with unanimous consent before and was grateful for that unanimous consent.

I have now confirmed it with all the parties and I move that the 27th report of the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs, presented to the House earlier this day, be concurred in.
