Electronic Petitions

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my hon. colleague from Burnaby—Douglas for bringing forth this important motion. I do hope it will get support from across the aisles. In my own riding, a group of constituents from Saanich—Gulf Islands raised the same issue with me. I have a petition in support of the idea. I wonder if there is anything my hon. colleague would like us to do on this side of the House in getting people’s support. It is really a non-partisan issue.

Kennedy Stewart: Mr. Speaker, I think what is important here is for all of us to talk about this motion with colleagues and people we have made friendships with who are open to reasonable change in the House. If this went all the way through and were introduced, it would not affect the business here in the House greatly, but it would impact the lives of Canadians.
