Thierry St-Cyr Bloc Jeanne-Le Ber, QC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-539, An Act to amend the Canada Transportation Act (vibration and noise).

Mr. Speaker, I am introducing this bill to amend the Canada Transportation Act with respect to railway noise. Last session, the House of Commons came to an agreement in committee on a text that would strengthen the Transportation Act. Unfortunately, the Senate did not agree with us and amendments were necessary in order to pass the bill before the end of the session. This bill would return the text to the form unanimously agreed upon by the committee.
