OTTAWA – Local Members of Parliament Peter Julian, MP (Burnaby-New Westminster), Bill Siksay (Burnaby Douglas), Fin Donnelly (New Westminster-Coquitlam-Port Moody) and their NDP colleagues are pledging to continue the fight on the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) after the Conservative/Liberal closure motion shut down debate on the HST Bill going through Parliament.
40th Parliament, 2nd Session
Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP):
Mr. Speaker, I am proud to present a petition signed by several hundred residents of the B.C. coast, the Lower Mainland, Victoria, Qualicum Beach and Port Alberni right up to Quadra Island and the Sunshine Coast. They join their voices to the thousands upon thousands of British Columbians who have joined the NDP's push for a judicial inquiry on the Fraser River sockeye.
WINNING THE JUDICIAL INQUIRY FOR THE SALMON CRISIS IS A GREAT FIRST STEP TO SAVING OUR WILD SALMON
Thank you for your exceptional participation in our campaign to pressure the Conservative government to launch an independent judicial inquiry into the wild salmon crisis in the Fraser River. In just a few weeks my office received thousands of signatures to the petition calling for the inquiry into the collapse of wild salmon stocks, which we presented to Parliament. Petitions are still flowing in.
Plenty of questions to answer in fish inquiry
Finally a Canadian prime minister is doing what none of his predecessors had the guts to do: Ask why Fraser River sockeye are going the way of the Atlantic cod.
