moved for leave to introduce Bill C-276, an act respecting Lester B. Pearson Day.
Mr. Speaker, I have the pleasure of tabling a private member's bill, the purpose of which is to honour the Right Hon. Lester B. Pearson for his contribution to Canada, the international community and world peacekeeping by designating the second Monday in February of each year as Lester B. Pearson Day.
I hope that all members will support this bill which aims to recognize a truly remarkable Canadian.
(Motions deemed adopted, bill read the first time and printed.)
