Peter Stoffer NDP Sackville—Eastern Shore, NS

moved, seconded by the member for Dartmouth--Cole Harbour, for leave to introduce Bill C-356, an act to change the name of the electoral district of Sackville--Eastern Shore.

Mr. Speaker, it gives me great pleasure to rise today on a very straightforward bill to change the electoral district of Sackville--Eastern Shore, which I now represent, to include the community of Preston. The riding name would then be formally known as Sackville--Preston--Eastern Shore.

I am proud to have my colleague from the Liberal Party, the member for Dartmouth—Cole Harbour, second the bill. For those who may know, his parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. John Savage, John being the former premier of Nova Scotia, were great advocates of the people of Preston and we think it would be an honour, not only to their memory but to the people of Preston, to include that great community in the federal riding of Sackville--Preston--Eastern Shore.
