Cornwall - May. 19, 2011 - Today, in the Ontario Legislature, Jim Brownell, MPP for Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry, will be debating his Private Members' Bill recognizing the contributions of Britain's Home Children to the Province of Ontario.

The Bill entitled Bill 185 - An Act to Proclaim British Home Child Day, if passed, would proclaim September 28th of each year as British Home Child Day. Last year, the same bill was introduced twice, as Bill 241 and Bill 12. Both Bills passed second reading, with unanimous support from all parties; however, they have either died or stalled in the Justice Committee.

Descendants of home children will be present in the Legislature while the bill is debated. The Bill is co-sponsored by MPP Cheri DiNovo (Parkdale-Highpark) and MPP Steve Clark (Leeds-Grenville). Also speaking on the bill will be MPP Donna Cansfield (Etobicoke-Centre) and Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, The Honourable Dr. Eric Hoskins.

Private member's business begins at 1:30pm, with each bill lasting approximately 50 minutes. MPP Brownell’s Bill is the third to be debated.
