moved for leave to introduce Bill C-210, an act requiring the national flag of Canada to be flown at half-mast on Remembrance Day.

Mr. Speaker, as we near Remembrance Day, this is a particular bill all members of Parliament of all political stripes can look at very quickly and pass almost immediately. It would require that every Canadian flag on every federal building in the country should be lowered to half-mast for the entire day on Remembrance Day, November 11, to show dignity and respect for our brave fallen in the many battles throughout the years.
