moved for leave to introduce Bill C-462, an act to ensure safe drinking water throughout Canada.
Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure to table, in my name and on behalf of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada, an act that provides for the establishment of national standards for safe drinking water in Canada and for the proper reporting and public disclosure of incidents of non-compliance with those standards.
The House may recall there was a motion similar to this initiative presented on May 8, 2001. Given that the government was unwilling to fill that legislative void it is incumbent upon the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada to do just that.
