Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to be presenting three petitions to the House this afternoon.
The first petition highlights the issue of forced organ harvesting and trafficking and calls on the House to quickly support the passage of Bill S-204, a bill that would make it a criminal offence for a person to go abroad and receive an organ that was taken without consent. The bill would also create a mechanism by which a person could be deemed inadmissible to Canada if they had been involved in forced organ harvesting and trafficking.
The bill is currently before the Senate at third reading. The petitioners are calling on the House to support the rapid adoption of this bill.
