Mr. Speaker, I am proud to be introducing a bill this week to amend the Canadian Environmental Protection Act to prohibit interprovincial movements of hazardous wastes.
This bill was designed by Mr. Rob Williams' French immersion students at Citadel High School as part of the Create Your Canada project.
After learning about the legislative process and government jurisdictions, the students identified some problems within our community. Many ideas were put forward, such as creating a scholarship program for studying French and promoting local food. Students then suggested a bill to encourage the provinces to find innovative solutions to reduce the quantity of waste produced.
I congratulate all the students who helped create this bill. I am proud to introduce this bill and represent these young people who care about the environment.
Way to go, Citadel High.
