moved for leave to introduce Bill C-260, an act to amend the Holidays Act (National Heritage Day) and to make consequential amendments to other acts.

Mr. Speaker, I thank the member for Kootenay—Boundary—Okanagan for supporting my private member's bill to make a day in February a national statutory holiday.

Members of the House and Canadians know that February is the only month of the year in which we do not have a statutory holiday. Heritage is already celebrated in February, so it only makes sense that Canadians deem heritage day a statutory holiday.

Canadians have found new interest over the last decade in the heritage of the country. My private member's bill calls for the government to amend the Holidays Act to include the heritage day statutory holiday. I ask all members to support the bill.

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-235, an act to amend the Young Offenders Act.

Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague from Lethbridge for seconding this bill which would amend the Young Offenders Act to make the offence set out in section 7.2 a hybrid offence.

The bill was originally introduced in the last parliament as Bill C-260. The Minister of Justice recognized the value of the legislation as she incorporated it in its entirety in the failed Bill C-3 in the last parliament.

I am endeavouring again to introduce this amendment to the Young Offenders Act that is in currently in force since we have no new legislation yet approved.
