Paddy Torsney Liberal Burlington, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-520, an act to establish and maintain a national Do-Not-Call Registry.

Mr. Speaker, I am sure all hon. members in the House will be wanting to support this bill, since many of them, and many of their constituents particularly, have been pestered by unwanted telephone solicitation. What the bill seeks to do is establish, maintain and update a national registry of Canadian residential telephone subscribers who choose not to receive telephone solicitation.

I think the members opposite are just so keen to support this, they are all heckling, but I am having trouble even speaking and hearing myself.
