Presenting petition 432-01183

Madam Speaker, it is an honour to present a petition on behalf of Canadians.

The petitioners wish to draw the House’s attention to the fact that Alberta has one of the highest unemployment rates in Canada and, in particular, many young men are out of work. They further wish to draw the House’s attention to the connection between a paycheque and one’s self-worth. They highlight the impact that this can have on the mental health and well-being of many unemployed Albertans.

Therefore, the petitioners call on the Government of Canada to work with local organizations, the Government of Alberta and businesses to see Alberta’s unemployment reduced to help those who are in need and for the government to immediately set up a 988 national suicide hotline.
