Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure to present a petition signed by many of my constituents as well as people from Spiritwood, Saskatoon and Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan and Minnedosa, Manitoba.
The petitioners believe that the Senate should be abolished. If we abolished the Senate we would save $600 million over the next 10 years. They feel that because it is an institution which is not very productive this should happen. They ask the House of Commons to provide an amendment to the Constitution of Canada in relation to certain matters that may be initiated by a resolution in the House of Commons.
