moved for leave to introduce Bill C-402, An Act respecting a Tartan Day.
Mr. Speaker, I probably should have allowed my colleague, the hon. member for Windsor—Tecumseh, to present this. It is ironic that a Dutchman would introduce a bill asking that April 6 be noticed as tartan day.
I thank Mrs. Jean Watson of lower Sackville, Nova Scotia for this great idea. The Scottish add great history to our country. Who cannot help celebrate January without a great Robbie Burns night?
We think it would be a great idea for the federal government and all parliamentarians recognize April 6 in Canada as tartan day in Canada.
