Mr. Speaker, I appreciate your kindness.
Over the last three years I have introduced petitions containing the names of tens of thousands of Canadians who have supported the repeal of section 745 of the Criminal Code, the provision that allows convicted killers to apply for early release or to have their parole ineligibility reduced.
Again, I would like to present petitions. I should note that I am flanked this afternoon by the hon. member from Trinity-Spadina and the hon. member for Calgary Southeast, both of whom support the repeal of section 745, together with the petitioners on this particular petition.
