Gary Goodyear Conservative Cambridge, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-325, An Act to change the name of the electoral district of Cambridge.

Mr. Speaker, the riding that I represent, Cambridge, Ontario, is actually more than just the city of Cambridge. Just to the southwest of us is a huge, expansive land, with rolling hills, that include a number of small villages, including the village of Ayr. That area is more commonly referred to as North Dumfries.

I propose that the name of the riding be changed from Cambridge to Cambridge—North Dumfries.
