moved for leave to introduce Bill C-248, An Act respecting an Emergency Services Appreciation Day.
Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague from Welland for being the seconder on the bill.
This bill, An Act respecting an Emergency Services Appreciation Day, would legislate that every third Saturday in July be known as emergency services appreciation day all across Canada.
The bill supports and recognizes the work done by police, firefighters and paramedics, and truly, every time we are on our way out of an emergency situation, they are on their way in. This day is our way of saying thanks for the great work that our emergency services personnel do right across our great country.
I hope everyone will support the bill.
