Mr. Speaker, I received in my riding office in Berthierville a petition from Claire Beaulieu, the director general of the Lanaudière branch of the Fédération de l'âge d'or du Québec. The petition is signed by more than 1,100 members from 23 seniors' clubs in the riding of Berthier—Montcalm.
The petitioners are calling on the government to move quickly to pass anti-gang legislation so that our streets and public places will again be safe.
I must tell the House immediately that this petition is not in the usual form. It is, however, very well written and very well prepared, and that is why I am seeking the unanimous consent of the House to present it.
I am sure that many other members from Quebec will be receiving such petitions, which are being circulated throughout Quebec.
