Mr. Speaker, I am very pleased to be able to present three petitions with hundreds of signatures from my constituency and all over Manitoba, adding to the thousands of other names we have presented in the House regarding the number one concern of Canadians, the future of our health care system.

The petitioners express concern about the lack of leadership by the federal government and the failure of the government to preserve medicare. They call upon the government to restore transfer payments, to oppose bill 11, and to move on its election promises of home care and pharmacare.

They want immediate action to save public health care and to stop two tier American style health care from coming to Canada.

Mr. Speaker, I have petitions I would like to present to parliament with the names of many people who ask the government to be careful with the use of permanent landing status for people who misuse marriage to get into the country. They would rather have ministerial permits issued.

I have petitions from dozens of people who are concerned about the immigration problems on the west coast.

Yvon Godin NDP Acadie—Bathurst, NB

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour today of presenting two petitions.

The first is signed by some one hundred people from Manitoba and the second by some fifty from New Brunswick.

The petitioners are calling for a stop to be put to the opening of private hospitals and the return of federal funding for health care, an immediate increase in federal funding for health care to 25% and the implementation of a national home care program and national drug plan.

Clearly, these petitioners do not believe in the kind of health care people have in the United States, and this is mentioned in the petition.

Louise Hardy NDP Yukon, YT

Mr. Speaker, I want to present a petition signed by hundreds of Canadians who are worried about the underfunded Canadian medicare system.

The Liberal government's underfunding has led to a shortage of nurses, hospital beds and emergency room spaces. They want the government to fund medicare up to 25%.

NDP

Dick Proctor NDP Palliser, SK

Mr. Speaker, my petition is also on the matter of health care. I am delighted that the Minister of Health is in the precincts.

People from Moose Jaw are very concerned that the federal government is paying only 13.5 cents on every dollar for health care. If this is not corrected, we are on our way to two tier American style health care in Canada. There is also concern expressed about bill 11. We know what the good voters in Edmonton thought about that earlier this week.

The petitioners call upon parliament to stop for profit hospitals and restore federal funding for health care. I am pleased to present the petition on behalf of the residents of Moose Jaw.
