Mr. A. F. Macdonald (Edmonton East):
Mr. SDeaker, I rise on a question of privilege. I wish to announce to hon. members that yesterday in England the Edmonton Mercury hockey team regained the world amateur hockey crown for Canada. The victory gave the western Canada intermediate champions a clean sweep in the seven tournament games, and Canada's twelfth title since 1924.
I wish to place on the record the name of Jim Christiansen of Edmonton, sponsor of the Mercury club, as well as the names of the players. They are as follows: Marsh Darling, team captain; Jimmy Graham, coach; Jack Manson, goal; Pete Wright and Jack Davies, defence; Doug Macauley, centre; Billy Dawe and Harry Allen, wings. Others on the team include Wilbur Delaney, Jim Kilburn, A1 Purvis, Don Goff, Bob Watt, Bob David, Ab Newsome, Hassie Young, Leo Lucchini and Bert Tonsi, trainer.
Yesterday in London the world amateur trophy was presented to team captain Marsh Darling by Dr. W. G. Hardy, also of Edmonton, who is president of the International Hockey Association. This hockey club has brought great honour to Canada, and I know that their expression of good will will be long remembered by the people in those nations where they served as excellent ambassadors for Canada in the field of sport. I am sure all hon. members will join in the congratulations to this great hockey club that has brought such honour to Canada, the province of Alberta and its home city of Edmonton.
