Fin Donnelly NDP New Westminster—Coquitlam, BC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-226, An Act to change the name of the electoral district of New Westminster—Coquitlam.

Mr. Speaker, I rise today to re-introduce an act to change the name of the electoral district New Westminster—Coquitlam. The bill would amend the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act by adding Port Moody to the riding name.

Port Moody is an important part of my riding. Nestled at the east end of Burrard Inlet and surrounded by stunning scenery, Port Moody is a city that has a rich history and is the original terminus for the Canadian Pacific Railway.

When I stand in the House, I want everyone to know who I am representing, and that includes the good people of Port Moody.

I ask my colleagues to pass the bill, as it would mean so much to all those in my riding.

(Motions deemed adopted, bill read the first time and printed)
