Raymond Côté NDP Beauport—Limoilou, QC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-612, An Act to amend the Auditor General Act and the Federal Sustainable Development Act (port authorities).

Mr. Speaker, I would like to sincerely thank the hon. member for Québec for seconding this bill.

I will keep my speech short. Currently, neither the Auditor General nor the Commissioner of Environment and Sustainable Development oversees the country's 18 port authorities. My bill simply aims to correct that situation because although port authorities function independently, they manage crown property, which is therefore public property. That is the purpose of this bill.

Again, I would like to thank the hon. member for Québec for seconding this bill, and I would ask that all of my colleagues examine it very closely in the coming months.
