Statement by Michael Chong
December 1, 2013
Over the last several days, I have been humbled by the outpouring of support for my Private Members’ Bill.
Since the text of the bill has not been released, there has been much speculation about its intent. The bill should not be viewed as a critique on any of the current leaders in the House of Commons. To suggest otherwise, misinterprets the intent of the bill.
Due to the interest surrounding the content of the bill, I have decided to introduce it in the House of Commons earlier than previously planned. This will allow me to release the text of the bill to the public and explain its content to Canadians. The bill will now be introduced on Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013 shortly after 10:00 AM EST.
I look forward to a vigourous debate on the merits of these proposed reforms to Canada’s Parliament and hope the bill will receive multi-party support.
