First, over 600 petitioners pray that Parliament will enact legislation to establish a national pedophile registry.

Petitions February 19th, 1997

Mr. Speaker, I have a petition signed by Calgarians as well as people who live just outside of Calgary. They are opposed to the early release of sex offenders and pedophiles. They state that sexual abuse of our children or anyone in society is intolerable. They are concerned about making our streets safer for our children. The petitioners therefore pray that Parliament enact legislation to establish a pedophile registry.

Department Of Justice Act February 12th, 1997

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-371, an act to amend the Department of Justice Act.

Mr. Speaker, the bill so named calls for the establishment of an oversight committee to oversee all proposed legislation and policy and existing legislation and policy that has an actual or potential effect on children. The enactment makes the Department of Justice the central co-ordinating body of this committee.

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

Veterans Affairs December 5th, 1996

Mr. Speaker, I am appealing to the Secretary of State for Veterans to replace two memorial cross medals received posthumously during the second world war. The original medals were stolen in 1988 and the Will family in my riding is seeking to replace them.

I ask the Secretary of State for Veterans to demonstrate compassion for this family, to do the right thing and replace these medals given in recognition for two brothers who died on the European front in World War II. Will he do so?

Petitions December 5th, 1996

Madam Speaker, I rise to present yet another petition from constituents in Calgary regarding parents who are concerned for the safety of our children. The petitioners I represent are concerned about making our streets safer for their children. They are opposed to the current status quo in the screening of pedophiles within the community. The petitioners pray that a federally implemented pedophile registry be established in order to better protect our children.
