Canada 150th

I thank the member for Vancouver-Langara for introducing his private member's motion: "Be it resolved that this House join with British Columbians in celebrating the upcoming 150th birthday of our great country — Canada." We only each have about five minutes to address this motion, and it's a big topic — this celebration of Canada's 150th anniversary. I'll begin with the fact that the southern part of Stikine is about 1,000 kilometres north of Victoria and 4,000 kilometres from Ottawa.

It would be a mistake to conclude that those in Stikine don't share many of the values that we wish to define ourselves as Canadians: fairness; justice; the belief that money should not be able to buy influence; and the belief that our government should work for all the people, not just an elite few.
