moved for leave to introduce Bill C-316, an act to promote a national wave of silence on Remembrance Day.

Madam Speaker, it is my pleasure once again to introduce this bill, modelled on a similar bill which was passed by both the Westminster Parliament and the Ontario provincial legislature.

It calls on Canadians, more seriously and broadly, to observe a moment of silence on Remembrance Day, and to ask the government to ensure that in every way possible that two minutes of silence is observed from coast to coast in every workplace and school, and by every broadcaster.
