Ms. Peggy Nash (Parkdale—High Park, NDP): Mr. Speaker, I rise today to present two petitions to the House, the first of which pertains to Bill C-4.
Hundreds of petitioners in my riding of Parkdale–High Park wish to call the House’s attention to Bill C-4, the preventing human smugglers from abusing Canada’s immigration system act. The petitioners argue that the bill is in violation of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms as well as numerous international conventions and covenants to which Canada is a party. They therefore call upon the House to withdraw the bill.
