Mr. Speaker, I rise to present two petitions this afternoon. One is from Canadians from coast to coast, ranging from my riding of Saanich—Gulf Islands and extending into Calgary and Ontario. This petition deals with a matter the House has had before it in a private member's bill, which is to ban the possession, sale and distribution of shark fins in Canada to deal with the very serious depletion of the species globally.
In the House of Commons on February 1st, 2012. See this statement in context.
