Guy Lauzon Stormont—Dundas—South Glengarry, ON
Mr. Speaker, I have a petition signed by 658 people from the riding of Stormont—Dundas—South Glengarry in support of Motion No. 312.
Glad Guy had a petition allegedly signed by 658 people. (Guy is notoriously bad at math)
That a special committee of the House be appointed and directed to review the declaration in Subsection 223(1) of the Criminal Code which states that a child becomes a human being only at the moment of complete birth and to answer the questions hereinafter set forth;
that the membership of the special committee consist of 12 members which shall include seven members from the government party, four members from the Official Opposition and one member from the Liberal Party, provided that the Chair shall be from the government party; that the members to serve on the said committee be appointed by the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs and the membership report of the special committee be presented to the House no later than 20 sitting days after the adoption of this motion;
that substitutions to the membership of the special committee be allowed, if required, in the manner provided by Standing Order 114(2);
that the special committee have all the powers of a Standing Committee as provided in the Standing Orders; and
that the special committee present its final report to the House of Commons within 10 months after the adoption of this motion with answers to the following questions,
(i) what medical evidence exists to demonstrate that a child is or is not a human being before the moment of complete birth, (ii) is the preponderance of medical evidence consistent with the declaration in Subsection 223(1) that a child is only a human being at the moment of complete birth, (iii) what are the legal impact and consequences of Subsection 223(1) on the fundamental human rights of a child before the moment of complete birth, (iv) what are the options available to Parliament in the exercise of its legislative authority in accordance with the Constitution and decisions of the Supreme Court to affirm, amend, or replace Subsection 223(1).
Mr. Lauzon costs taxpayers nearly $200,000 per year. His gold plated pension will be over double the average income of residents of his riding.
When he’s not trying to stir up abortion issues he’s hiding out in Ottawa or attempting to use his office for non governmental matters such as when he threatened this scribbler with the use of the Attorney General of Canada over his abuse of the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate which he sat on the board of, again, while in office.
Abortion is a complicated issue. It’s for heady people of stout convictions and reality to discuss. Not some mealy pandering corrupt politician looking to suck up for a few votes.
It’s an issue that courts have dealt with clearly and in this day and age of complete lack of accountability not a situation where we force people into situations that not only could endanger their lives, but hurt our society.
We need to take better care of those living on this planet before we start to litigate about those that haven’t made it here yet.
Abortion is a serious issue that many women face for many reasons. It’s decision that a woman has to live with for the rest of her life. It’s not something that should be politicized.
I’m glad Motion C-312 failed. I’m more glad to see who supported it though because these are people whose names voters should know.
These are people that should be held accountable for the ills in their ridings and for wasting tax payers dollars on such a motion in the current state our economy is.
