Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, more signatures are being collected as I speak, but today I would like to table Petition No. 11-12(7) that was organized by the Nunatsiaq coalition against further gun controls. It is signed by 966 residents of various communities in the three regions of Nunatsiaq riding in Nunavut. It reads:

"We, the residents of Nunatsiaq are strongly opposed to the proposed gun control legislation, Bill C-68, and as such, do not support further controls which are intrusive, unfair and unreasonable to the legitimate aspirations of law-abiding, responsible firearm owners and users."

Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I, too, would like to table a petition which I believe also came from the Nunatsiaq coalition. However, the wording is somewhat different and it comes from the residents of Baker Lake, with 21 names. Petition No. 12-12(7) reads as follows:

"Be it known that we agree, in principle, with firearm legislation designed to protect the citizens of Canada from harm from the criminal element and that there is need for legislation affecting the use and kinds of weapons which can be obtained and used legally. The time has come, however, to make our views known to the government body of Canada, that it is time for legislation which punishes the criminal element with harsher and more severe penalties for committing an offence with a firearm. For who among us thinks that by making a firearm illegal or restricted will stop a criminal from obtaining it, if he truly wants it? Further restricting hunters and honest gun owners with useless legislation does nothing but hurt our abilities to make a living from hunting and using firearms. Therefore, the people of Baker Lake in the Northwest Territories hereby agree and affix their signatures to this petition. This petition

represents the views of those who sign their names below."

Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Mr. Speaker, I would like to table Tabled Document 134-12(7), an article from the Globe and Mail, dated Monday, June 12, 1995 titled "Clipped Wings, Beyond Bandaging." It's an article on our education systems today. I think it's very relevant, as we're dealing with the Education Act.
