Petitions (International Trade & Lyme Disease)

International Trade

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise this morning to present two petitions. The first is from residents within Saanich—Gulf Islands from Pender Island, Brentwood Bay, North Saanich, Sydney, and throughout the riding. They call on this administration to cease its pursuit of the Canada-China investment treaty and to refuse to ratify it at the cabinet table. This is a treaty that, as the petitioners point out, presents significant threats to Canadian sovereignty because of the inability to leave the Canada-China investment treaty in less than 36 years should it ever be ratified.

Lyme Disease

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, the second petition comes from residents of Brampton, Kingston, and Caledon. I am grateful for their support for the private member’s bill that will be going to the health committee this week, Bill C-442, my private member’s bill on a national Lyme disease strategy. I am very grateful to all members of the House for their support and for this petition.
