Diane Ablonczy Calgary—Nose Hill, AB

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to present to the House today a stack of petitions signed by thousands of Canadians from right across the country.

The petitions deal with the provisions of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act which was passed in this House in 2002.

The House will remember that this act provided that a refugee appeal division would be put into place. The House will also know that that provision of the legislation has still not been honoured by the government even though it is the law of the land.

These thousands of Canadians from across the country are petitioning the House of Commons for the legislation to be honoured by the government and that the refugee appeal division be put into place immediately.

Mr. Speaker, I am very pleased to table petitions signed by thousands of people from across the country, especially young people, in reference to Darfur.

The petitioners call upon the Government of Canada to pressure the UN and gather international support to broaden the mandate of the African Union to allow for intervention under chapter 7 of the UN charter, providing multinational resources to the African Union and provide a strong peacekeeping presence in Darfur.

They also call on the government to provide peacekeepers, training observers and logistical support to complement AU forces in the region to protect innocents, in keeping with the concept of the responsibility to protect.

Further, they call on the government to press the UN and gather international support to bring civil servants implicated in war crimes to trial in the International Criminal Court, to bring perpetrators to justice, and uphold the standards of international law.

Mr. Speaker, it is with great pride that I table a petition signed by residents of a small parish in my riding called Haute-Aboujagane.

These people are very concerned about the closure of post offices in rural regions. The postmaster in their small parish, Mr. LeBlanc, has retired and the residents of that community are urging the government to appoint someone to replace him, so that the Haute-Aboujagane post office remains open.
