This enactment amends the Parliament of Canada Act to prohibit the members of the House of Commons from using funds, goods, services or premises made available to them for the carrying out of parliamentary functions to support or oppose the appointment or the election of a person to the board of directors of the Canadian Wheat Board or to that of any federal body. It also amends the Canada Post Corporation Act to prohibit those members from transmitting mail free of postage for the same purpose.

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-258, An Act to amend the Parliament of Canada Act and the Canada Post Corporation Act (use of resources by members).
Mr. Speaker, this is a reintroduction of a previous bill I had. It comes as a result of tampering with previous board of director elections at the Canadian Wheat Board. It says that MPs should not interfere with any democratic process, such as electoral processes, of any organization such as the Canadian Wheat Board or other crown corporations. It is my hope that we will ensure that does not happen.
