I want to engage Canadians, and need your help to ensure we are heard in the House of Commons. By taking advantage of an Member of Parliament’s privilege to table petitions on issues that Canadians care about. I can table a petition or two every single day that Parliament is in session, which is roughly 140 to 280 petitions a year!
A petition is a formal request to an authority for redress of a grievance. Public petitions, addressed to the House of Commons and presented to the House by its Members, constitute one of the most direct means of communication between the people and Parliament. Petitions today may be described as a vehicle for political input, a way of attempting to influence policy-making and legislation and also, judging by their continued popularity, a valued means of bringing public concerns to the attention of Parliament. Petitions also have their place among the tools which Members and Ministers can use to formulate public policy and to carry out their representative duties.
