41st PARLIAMENT, 1st SESSION – September 21, 2012

Mr. Ted Hsu (Kingston and the Islands, Lib.):

“Mr. Speaker, I am presenting a petition calling on the government to reverse its cuts and the closure of the Experimental Lakes Area, a research station which for many decades has provided and could continue to provide information that the government needs to protect our freshwater ecosystems.”


Mr. Kevin Lamoureux (Winnipeg North, Lib.):

“Mr. Speaker, I rise to table a petition on behalf of individuals who are concerned about the aquatic ecosystem with regard to the Experimental Lakes Area. They are calling on the government to reverse the cuts and to make a firm commitment in support of the Experimental Lakes Area.”


Mr. Francis Scarpaleggia (Lac-Saint-Louis, Lib.):

“Mr. Speaker, I would like to table some petitions signed by Canadians who are very upset at the government’s decision to shut down the Experimental Lakes Area. These petitioners recognize that it is an invaluable resource for water research in Canada and around the world. They just do not understand why the government has gone this route.”
