moved for leave to introduce Bill C-239, an act to amend the Canada Post Corporation Act.
Mr. Speaker, the purpose of this bill is to provide for the establishment of a system allowing persons who do not wish to receive direct mail advertising or mailing of printed matter without further address than householder, box holder, occupant or resident to notify Canada Post Corporation accordingly, and that Canada Post respect the wishes of the residents if they do not wish to receive junk mail, and that Canada Post comply accordingly.
The bill would empower Canadians by having their wishes respected by Canada Post. It would also be good for the environment.
(Motions deemed adopted, bill read the first time and printed.)
