Firearms Act  Mr. Speaker, I wonder if the hon. member realizes that the signatures on that petition reflect just 4% of licenced Canadian firearms owners. I would not sign that petition. We need to listen to all Canadians. It also only reflects 0.25% of all Canadians across this country. Whil

Wrecked, Abandoned or Hazardous Vessels Act  Mr. Speaker, it is really all about developing a coordinated long-term, integrated solution. The development of this legislation has taken time.

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, what was behind this was that we saw a need as well to increase the number of navigable waters that were protected.
