Petitions Mr. Speaker, it is a pleasure to table yet another petition signed by residents of Winnipeg North. It is about the pharmacare program. The petitioners want to see a national pharmacare system put into place for prescription medicine.

Aeronautics Act Mr. Speaker, like Manitoba, I really do care about the province of Quebec. I care about the different regions of our country. My ancestors, both on my mother's and father's side, originated from the province of Quebec. I was an MLA for many years, almost two decades, in Manitoba.
