moved for leave to introduce Bill C-407, An Act respecting an International Mother Language Day.
Mr. Speaker, it is an honour for me today to table my first private member's bill, an act to declare February 21 international mother language day.
Many thanks should be given to the mother language lovers of the world for their tireless efforts in advocating this cause. As one of the diverse and multicultural countries that promotes these values around the world, it is vital that Canada take the lead in supporting these worthy initiatives.
I hope that all members will see the importance of supporting the bill.
