Mr. Speaker, I have a petition signed by 33 residents from London, Ontario, whom I met recently. The petitioners point out that acts of discrimination against lesbian, gay and bisexual Canadians are an every day reality in all regions of Canada. This kind of discrimination is unacceptable in a country known for its commitment to human rights, equality and dignity for all citizens. Therefore the petitioners call upon Parliament to act quickly to amend the Canadian Human Rights Act to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
In the House of Commons on February 10th, 1995. See this statement in context.
