John Maloney Liberal Welland, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-395, An Act to change the name of the electoral district of Welland.

Mr. Speaker, this is a bill to change the name from that of one municipality within the riding, which actually consists of five different municipalities. We would like to change the riding name to Niagara Centre South, which is very similar to the name that represented roughly the same area in the 38th Parliament and before that. I would ask respectfully that the House consider the renaming of the riding.
