Mr. Speaker, at this particular time I would like to rise on a point of order with regard to a petition that is on my desk. The petition contains the signatures of nearly 115,000 Canadians from coast to coast to coast requesting that the border be opened.
The petition was put together by two individuals from the town of Cochrane, Alberta. They worked hard at it. They vowed to bring 10,000 signatures to the House of Commons in October. Last week they appeared, not with 10,000, but with nearly 115,000 signatures. This is excellent hard work on behalf of these folks. The title of the petition is to open the border.
The only problem with the petition is that it has not been addressed properly to the House of Commons. It would just simply be to the House of Commons.
I think the intent is quite clear. I think here is our opportunity to show 115,000 people that their voice can be heard in this great place.
I would ask for unanimous consent that this petition be accepted.
