Mr. Gordon Graydon (Peel):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege to draw the attention of all hon. members to a representative group of young Canadians from collegiate institutes and high schools in many parts of Canada who are distinguished visitors in the galleries this afternoon. These students, numbering 132, are the guests of the Ottawa Rotary club, which, in association with well over one hundred other Rotary clubs in Canada, deserves high praise and credit for this outstanding adventure in citizenship promotion, furnishing, as it does, a very special opportunity for these fine samples of young Canada to gain a firsthand appreciation of the beauties and facilities of our national capital and the workings of our free democratic way of life at the national level.
As a Rotarian myself I take deep pride in calling their presence today to the attention of the House of Commons, at the same time extending to our visitors on behalf of all hon. members a warm and enthusiastic welcome to parliament hill.
