moved for leave to introduce Bill C-287, An Act to amend the Holidays Act (Remembrance Day).
Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to reintroduce a bill, which its adoption I have advocated since I was first elected to the House. My bill to amend the Holidays Act (Remembrance) would honour those who have sacrificed their lives for our country by making Remembrance Day a legal holiday.
I look forward to the bill's quick passage to honour all of those who have died serving our country.
