Peter Stoffer NDP Sackville—Eastern Shore, NS

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-213, An Act to change the name of the Electoral District of Sackville--Eastern Shore.

Mr. Speaker, in my riding is the largest indigenous black population in Canada. The community is called Preston, a very historic community in our country. I think it would honour them and our country if the name of my riding were changed to Sackville--Preston--Eastern Shore.
