Mr. Speaker, I believe you would find consent to proceed to putting the question before the House on the ways and means motion before completing routine proceedings. Should a recorded division be requested, I would suggest that we forgo the bells.

Mr. Speaker, it is my honour to present several petitions today. The petitioners ask the government to reduce fuel taxes across the country.

I have several petitions here. In fact, I have a larger stack back in my office in uncertifiable form. We are working on those petitions and we will be introducing them soon. I bring these petitions forward on behalf of my constituents.
