Mr. Speaker, I have three petitions from citizens of the riding of Peterborough. All of them deal with the lowering of taxes on tobacco. Each makes a different point.
The first petition from 47 people of Peterborough stresses that the government should deal with smuggling in some other way.
The second petition which has 25 signatures says that the tax will cause between 175,000 and 350,000 more teenagers to smoke in Canada.
The third petition which also has 25 signatures stresses that the tobacco industry knows that lower taxes simply mean higher profits for it.
I present these petitions under Standing Order 36.
