Canada Evidence Act
Routine Proceedings

12:10 p.m.

Conservative

Ken Epp Edmonton—Sherwood Park, AB

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-310, An Act to amend the Canada Evidence Act (interpretation of numerical dates).

Mr. Speaker, my private member's bill is one which I have introduced even before the year 2000 because I saw the impending doom of stating dates in numeric form and the ambiguity that this causes now in these years.

My wife went away and I cooked myself some macaroni and cheese. The date was wrong. The date was not given in the right format and I ate some rotten food. That is a true story.

The bill will correct that very disastrous situation.

National Capital Act
Routine Proceedings

12:10 p.m.

NDP

Paul Dewar Ottawa Centre, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-311, An Act to amend the National Capital Act (Gatineau Park).

Mr. Speaker, I am proud to introduce my first private member's bill. It is an act to amend the National Capital Act. This is actually an issue that my predecessor, the member for Ottawa Centre, Mr. Broadbent, had put forward in the House. I wish to follow up on his good work.

The bill would seek to establish boundaries around Gatineau Park and provide a mechanism for changes to the boundaries around Gatineau Park. It is to recognize that one of the purposes of the National Capital Commission is to acquire privately owned land, so that real properties or provincial properties situated in Gatineau Park remain in the public context.

I am delighted to have the support of my colleague from Hamilton East—Stoney Creek.
