Mr. C. E. Bennett (Grey North):
Mr. Speaker, on a question of privilege, I should like to draw the attention of the house to the fact that the Owen Sound Mercurys won the Canadian senior hockey championship last evening. We in Grey North are of course exceedingly proud of the Mercurys. I regret that my duties here prevented me from seeing all but one game of the finals. To my good friend the hon. member for Kenora-Rainy River, I should like to say that his team, the Fort Frances Canadians, were worthy opponents. They were not quite good enough, but they proved to be a formidable hockey club. What is more important, they were good losers and good sports.
I should also like to remind hon. members that the Owen Sound Crescents won the dominion senior lacrosse championship last year.
