Helena Guergis Conservative Simcoe—Grey, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-457, An Act to change the name of the electoral district of Simcoe--Grey.

Mr. Speaker, it is a pleasure today to have the opportunity to rise in the House and present my private member's bill, which would change the name of my riding from Simcoe--Grey to Simcoe--Town of The Blue Mountains.

I would like to thank my hon. colleague from Bruce--Grey--Owen Sound for seconding my private member's bill.

The Town of The Blue Mountains is virtually the only part of Grey county that is in my riding. I want to thank and congratulate Mayor Ellen Anderson who worked so hard for the people of Blue Mountains and invite all Canadians to come to our beautiful four-season resort area.
