Mr. Speaker, I have the honour today to rise and present a petition on behalf of many of my constituents from Calgary Centre, particularly in this case the Westgate, Wildwood and Glamorgan areas of my riding. The petitioners are concerned about the CAP program. The community access program is in its last year of existence.
The CAP initiative has greatly increased the number of Canadians who are able to take advantage of the social and economic benefits of computers and the Internet. The absence of CAP will be a step backward in the Canadian government's ongoing goal to improve the quality of life of Canadian citizens. These petitioners are asking that the program be continued.
