Mr. Speaker, I have two petitions. In the first petition the petitioners pray and request that Parliament recognize their Judeo-Christian heritage and call for a return to the Holy Bible as the nation's moral standard. They call for the return of Bible reading and prayer in our public schools, the reinstatement of the name of Jesus Christ and the Lord's Prayer in the parliamentary daily opening prayer, and in recognition of the spiritual need of this nation, to declare a national day of prayer and repentance.
In the House of Commons on March 11th, 1996. See this statement in context.
