moved for leave to introduce Bill C-255, An Act to establish and maintain a national Breast Implant Registry.
Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my former colleague, Ms. Judy Wasylycia-Leis, for introducing the bill in previous Parliaments. Like her, I believe the bill is very important for the health and safety of women. It is essential that there be a registry of breast implants and that it be maintained so that if there are health risks associated with any implants, the people involved can be identified and contacted.
Women have suffered dreadfully in the past. We do not want to see that happen in future.
