Telefilm Canada Act

Bloc

Luc Malo Verchères—Les Patriotes, QC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-557, An Act to amend the Telefilm Canada Act (Quebec audio-visual productions).

Mr. Speaker, it is a great privilege for me to introduce a bill to change the programs of Telefilm Canada in order for that organization to recognize the distinct nature of the Quebec film industry, which is different from its Canadian counterpart in its maturity, level of development, content and style.

Having recognized that Quebeckers form a nation, the time has come for this House to acknowledge that we have a national culture and therefore a national film industry. Words must be put into action.

(Motions deemed adopted, bill read the first time and printed)

NDP

Penny Priddy Surrey North, BC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-558, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (cruelty to animals).

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise in the House today to present this bill, which is an amendment to the Criminal Code regarding animal cruelty. This bill really intends to remedy the deficiencies seen in Bill S-203, which was recently before this House. The people who are working out there on behalf of animal rights and the humane treatment of animals have wanted this for some time. I am pleased to present it today.

(Motions deemed adopted, bill read the first time and printed)

Parliament of Canada Act

Liberal

Brian Murphy Moncton—Riverview—Dieppe, NB

moved for leave to introduce Bill S-224, An Act to amend the Parliament of Canada Act (vacancies).

Mr. Speaker, I am honoured to introduce Bill S-224.

It is my pleasure to speak in support of this bill, which is beautiful in its simplicity, to compel the government to fill Senate vacancies that are hindering the representation of many provinces, including my own. A second part of the bill indicates that the Prime Minister shall call byelections in the order in which the seats of the House become vacant, so that no party may play checkerboard politics with the representation of people whose ridings are not represented by a member.

I do hope the House will see, in a non-partisan way, that this is a wonderful bill to modernize and regularize the representation of all people in all ridings, in both Houses, for all of Canada.

(Motion agreed to and bill read the first time)
