moved for leave to introduce Bill C-381, An Act to amend the National Capital Act (appointments and meetings).
Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my seconder, the hon. member for Sackville—Eastern Shore, for helping me with this important project, an act to amend the National Capital Act regarding appointments and public meetings.
For years now, people have asked for transparency and a public process for the appointment of people to the National Capital Commission. I am delighted to present this bill to bring democracy to the National Capital Commission and to ensure that we have a National Capital Commission of which we can all be proud. I hope that the government actually takes my bill and adopts it.
