Masse Petitions the House of Commons to end the Atrocities in Darfur

Hansard – January 29, 2009
Petition on the Darfur Atrocities & Human Rights

Mr. Brian Masse (Windsor West, NDP): The second petition that I have, Mr. Speaker, is a petition to act on the humanitarian catastrophe in Darfur.

The petitioners call upon the Government of Canada to engage the international community in whatever way is necessary to end the atrocities. Each signature in the petitions represents 100 innocent citizens of Darfur who have been killed and I thank those petitioners who have gone out of their way to make sure this petition goes forward.
