Mr. Speaker, the second petition contains 498 signatures.
The petitioners bring attention to the fact that British Columbia has a senatorial selection act which allows for the election of British Columbia senators. They also draw attention to the fact that British Columbia Senator Len Marchand will resign his Senate seat shortly.
Therefore, these petitioners call on Parliament to urge the Governor General to appoint a duly elected person to the forthcoming vacant British Columbia seat in the Senate of Canada. I fully concur with my constituents.
