Statements in the House

Petitions June 19th, 1995

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 31, the form and the content of the attached petition have been certified.

Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure to present a petition from approximately 850 Canadians from the Montreal area. The long and turbulent history of humanity has, at times, concealed far reaching events of tragic proportions.

Eighty years ago the Armenian genocide, perpetrated by the Turkish government of the Ottoman Empire, claimed the lives of 1.5 million innocent Armenian victims.

Resolutions of the United Nations subcommission, the European Parliament, South American countries and in Canada, the legislatures of Quebec and Ontario have condemned this monumental crime.

Hence, the petitioners request that Parliament change its policy of indifference toward the Armenian genocide and actively initiate and promote international efforts to persuade Turkey to recognize its crime against humanity.

Cn Commercialization Act June 19th, 1995

I would like to add my vote to that of the Liberal members on Motion No. 11.

(The House divided on Motion No. 11, which was negatived on the following division:)

Petitions April 24th, 1995

Mr. Speaker, I have the pleasure of presenting a petition from several residents in Quebec and more particularly the group Affordable Textbooks Now.

As the result of the increasing cost of textbooks which are needed for student studies, many people are forced to effectively break the law because they are photocopying in part or in whole many of the textbooks for which they are not in a position to pay.

Therefore they request that Parliament put an end to the GST on textbooks and take into account the high price of textbooks when allotting money for educational funding.

The Late Marcel Tourangeau September 22nd, 1994

Mr. Speaker, I would like to offer my sincere condolences to Mrs. Gabrielle Tourangeau and her children on the death of her husband Marcel.

Marcel was well known in Saint-Laurent for his many activities as a volunteer and his tireless involvement, particularly as the founder and chairman of the Montpellier seniors group. Among other activities they could be seen playing pétanque every day of the year, whatever the weather-outdoors in the summer, indoors in the winter.

Marcel will be missed by all and especially by his family and his many friends. We have lost a great Canadian.

Interparliamentary Delegations February 9th, 1994

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 34, I have the honour to present to the House, in both official languages, the report of the parliamentary delegation to Sao Paulo, Brazil, from July 16 to July 19, 1993.
