NDP Justice Critic Gerry Rogers (MHA, St. John’s Centre) says a report from the Centre for Law and Democracy is clear indication that Bill 29 was repressive and regressive legislation.

 

NDP Justice Critic Gerry Rogers (MHA, St. John's Centre) and the NDP Caucus are circulating a petition calling for the repeal of Bill 29.

Interested members of the public are invited to contact Gerry's office, and are welcome to circulate the petition and collect signatures.

MR. MURPHY: Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
