moved for leave to introduce Bill C-205, An Act respecting the labelling of food products.
Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague from Winnipeg for seconding the bill.
Canadians are worried about what is in their food. They are worried about the lack of regulation and support by the government on food regulation. This bill would be explicit about what is in their food. It is something we should have had a long time ago. If the government wants to adopt this bill, I would be happy to give it to them.
I would like to thank Dr. Shiv Chopra and many others in the food safety movement for their help on this bill.
