Mr. Speaker, this petition is on another issue. It is submitted by residents primarily of the South Thompson valley between Chase and Kamloops.
The petitioners point out the need for a national highway system program to upgrade highways throughout Canada and for more of
the federal excise tax on gasoline be allocated to improving Canada's highway system.
The petition recognizes that Canada, being the second largest country geographically in the world that transportation costs are crucial to the cost of living.
