moved for leave to introduce Bill C-211, An Act respecting a Seniors’ Day.
Mr. Speaker, this is a non-monetary bill.
Many seniors in my riding have asked that a special day be marked on the calendar honouring the work and sacrifices made by our seniors. It would be just a token gesture to pick a day on the calendar as seniors' day to recognize and honour those golden citizens, as we call them, for their great work in building this country, for keeping an eye on us and for helping to raise us.
This is a non-monetary bill and something which could be adopted unanimously fairly quickly.
