moved for leave to introduce Bill C-321, An Act to amend the Canada Post Corporation Act (library materials).
Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to introduce this bill, as I have in previous times in the House.
This bill moves to guarantee a postal rate for libraries for interchange and to provide books to Canadians at a reduced postal rate. It also moves to increase the access, including the definition of library material from books, magazines, records, CDs, CD-ROMs, audiovisual cassettes, DVDs and other audiovisual materials.
I would advise members of the House that this bill had been passed unanimously by all members of Parliament in the last session and had gone to the Senate just prior to the call of the election.
I look forward to moving this bill forward again.
