Dave Van Kesteren Conservative Chatham-Kent—Essex, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-330, An Act to change the name of the electoral district of Chatham-Kent--Essex.

Mr. Speaker, I would like to move this private member's bill for a name change to my riding. As you know Chatham-Kent—Essex is the current name. The people of Leamington, who occupy that section of Essex, have brought it to my attention that they would like to see this name change. This private member's bill has already taken place in the provincial legislature and I would also like to table this in this House, as well.
