Paul Forseth Conservative New Westminster—Coquitlam, BC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-336, an act to change the name of the electoral district of New Westminster—Coquitlam.

Mr. Speaker, it became very obvious during the last election that the name of the riding should be changed. Perhaps you could take notice that we should have private discussions to collect all such similar bills and at another time agree to pass all these bills at all stages.

There are a number of ridings that want a similar effect to my current bill which meets the community need.
