Fin Donnelly NDP New Westminster—Coquitlam, BC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-496, An Act to change the name of the electoral district of New Westminster--Coquitlam.

Mr. Speaker, I rise today to present a piece of legislation that is of concern to the people in my riding.

Nestled between the Fraser River and the Pacific Ocean, with the beautiful coast mountains as the backdrop, my riding includes three distinct communities, New Westminster, Coquitlam and Port Moody.

When the riding name was updated in 2006, only two of these communities were recognized. Port Moody's name was not included in the title, and as a distinct and important part of my riding I am hoping that the House will consent to correct that. This is the aim of this piece of legislation.

I am very proud of my riding and I would ask that all members of the House lend their support to this bill.
