Madam Speaker, I am honoured today to table a petition on behalf of constituents of my riding of London West.
The petitioners are calling upon the Government of Canada to increase the amount of its childhood cancer research funding by 10%. They show concern towards the fact that childhood cancer is the leading cause of disease-related deaths among Canadian children.
The petition is signed by signatories who have had their lives impacted by childhood cancer.
I would like to thank the advocacy of Kim Vanderschel, who helped to collect these signatures.
