Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to present petitions today.
The first is from people in and around Calgary, submitted by Crista Keating, James Howe, and Sally Lewis.
These petitioners are concerned about recently proposed tax changes, as are many Canadians. They are concerned that the proposed changes will make it more difficult for small businesses and those struggling to make them a success. They are concerned the government has created a climate of instability and uncertainty for small businesses, and this has put millions of jobs at risk. The petitioners ask that the government recognize the risks in operating a small business and abandon its unfair tax changes.
