moved for leave to introduce Bill C-215, An Act to change the name of the electoral district of Sackville — Eastern Shore.
Mr. Speaker, a few folks would know that in my riding is the great community of Preston. It has the largest indigenous black population in Canada. They trace their roots back over 400 years.
The community of Preston is a very historic and wonderful community and it is geographically right in the centre of my riding.
I would like to change the name of my riding from Sackville—Eastern Shore to Sackville--Preston--Eastern Shore in recognition of that fabulous community.
(Motions deemed adopted, bill read the first time and printed)
