Harold Albrecht Kitchener—Conestoga, ON

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour today to present a petition on behalf of the residents of Kitchener—Conestoga and the surrounding area.

The signatories of this petition recognize that the Supreme Court, on January 28, 1988, stated that it is for Parliament to enact the appropriate defences of its legitimate interest in the lives of all subjects, including those yet in the womb.

In light of that, the petitioners are requesting that Parliament consider restoring to the Criminal Code the prudence it held prior to 1968 by removing the words “after becoming a human being” from subsection 223(2).

Mr. Speaker, I have a petition to present which has to do with the Kyoto protocol. The petitioners note that the world's climate scientists are agreed that the impacts of climate change will become catastrophic unless we reduce greenhouse gas emissions immediately. The petitioners call on Parliament to honour the legal commitment to the Kyoto treaty.

Mr. Speaker, this petition is signed by many people in Vancouver and elsewhere in British Columbia. They point out that more than two million Canadians are in desperate need of affordable housing. They also point out that assistance should be provided to the 10,000 co-ops that lost their subsidies and that 200,000 units of affordable and co-op housing be built based on a national housing strategy. They call on Parliament to make sure that this becomes a priority.
