Context : Presenting Petitions
Mr. Peter Julian (New Westminster—Burnaby, NDP): Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to present a petition today with signatories from central Ontario, Peterborough, Otonabee and Lakefield, Ontario, who are adding their voices to the thousands of Canadians and organizations representing more than three million Canadians that support and call upon the Government of Canada to support Bill C-331, the international promotion and protection of human rights act, that would create a new civil cause of action that would allow Canadian Federal Courts to hear and decide claims for violations of international law that occur outside of Canada.
These petitioners believe very strongly in Canada’s commitment to human rights and Canadian companies have been involved in human rights abuses abroad. These petitioners call on the Government of Canada to support my bill, Bill C-331.« Back to News
