moved for leave to introduce Bill C-485, An Act respecting a Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms Day.

Mr. Speaker, it is a privilege and an honour to present this bill in the year of the 25th anniversary of our Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms defines us as Canadians. It makes all Canadians who come from all over the world equal before the law.

This bill would enable Canadians to appreciate our past and our present and to look forward to the future.
