Mr. Speaker, over the last few days many MPs have met with representatives of the International Association of Firefighters.
The firefighters are asking for a number of things, all of which I support, but today I would urge the government to act as soon as possible on a number of them.
There is no good reason for delay on setting up the system for tracking hazardous materials and right to know legislation. Likewise there is no good reason to delay on setting up a notification protocol for infectious diseases.
I call on the government to act swiftly on these two requests of the firefighters. They serve our communities well in an already dangerous job. It does not need to be made unnecessarily more dangerous by government failure on these two particularly responsible requests.
