41st PARLIAMENT, 1st SESSION – September 25, 2012

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

“Mr. Speaker, I would like to present two petitions today.

In the first petition, the petitioners are calling upon the government to abandon its unwise plan to eliminate the experimental lakes area.”


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

“Mr. Speaker, I rise today to present a petition concerning the experimental lakes area.

The petitioners are asking the government to keep the experimental lakes area funded and open. This is a whole ecosystem research laboratory that has informed the government in the past, to help us make smart decisions about how to protect our freshwater resources, and will be able to continue to do so in the future. That is why these Canadians have asked the government to continue funding.”
