CURLING

WINNING OF CANADIAN CHAMPIONSHIP BY NOVA SCOTIA RINK

PC

George Clyde Nowlan

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. C. Nowlan (Annapolis-Kings):

Mr. Speaker, I am sure all hon. members from Nova Scotia will tender their sympathy to my deskmate, the hon. member for Moose Jaw (Mr. Thatcher), to the hon. member for Souris (Mr. Ross) and to the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Gardiner), as well as to all other ardent curlers in the house, on the fact that teams representing those various places in the Canadian championship bowed to the Nova Scotia team in Halifax on Saturday last.

I am sure, sir, that all of them will join with us from Nova Scotia in tendering our congratulations to the Kentville rink consisting of Wallace Knock, Fred Dyke, George Hansen and Donald Oyler, a very youthful and, from the national standpoint, inexperienced team. They not only won the dominion championship, but won it in such a way that their record can never be broken, and probably will never be equalled.

Mr. J. H. Dickey (Halifax):

Mr. Speaker, may I say how pleased and happy the city of Halifax and the province of Nova Scotia were to entertain those who participated in the Dominion curling championship. The bonspiel was a model of good feeling and good sportsmanship; and while it was not the role of the perfect host to win the championship we could not help taking a great deal of pleasure from that fact as well.
