Bruce Hyer Thunder Bay—Superior North, ON

Mr. Speaker, I have the pleasure of presenting a petition on behalf of residents of Kenora, Ontario and Winnipeg, Manitoba about the closing of the Experimental Lakes Area.

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to present this petition regarding CCSVI. Today marks one year and eighty-two days since the government promised clinical trials on CCSVI. There is still no action and in this time we have potentially lost more than 450 people to devastating multiple sclerosis and those living with the disease will have worsened on average by one disability score.

The petitioners call for the Minister of Health to consult experts actively engaged in the diagnosis and treatment of CCSVI to undertake phase III clinical trials on an urgent—

Mr. Speaker, I am honoured to present a petition signed by women and men from across Canada who are opposed to the Conservative Motion No. 312, a thinly veiled attempt to reopen the abortion debate in Canada, a debate that Canadians have already had. Canadians are ready to move on. It is about time that all members of the Conservative benches support of a woman's right to choose.

Leon Benoit Vegreville—Wainwright, AB

Mr. Speaker, I have three petitions.

In two of them, constituents note that section 223 of the Criminal Code comes from 400-year-old British common law and the child only becomes a human being once he or she proceeds from the womb. The petitioners call on Parliament to have a discussion on that.

In the other one, the petitioners call on Parliament to amend section 223 of the Criminal Code to reflect current science.
