THE LATE OLOF HANSON

TRIBUTE TO FORMER MEMBER FOR SKEENA

LIB

Daniel (Dan) McIvor

Liberal

Mr. Daniel Mclvor (Fort William):

Mr. Speaker, with your permission I should like to pay tribute to a former member of the house for the constituency of Skeena, Mr. Olof Hanson. He was a man whom we knew to be a clear thinker, honest and faithful in his service and a credit to the country from which he came. He gave meritorious service to Canada. The finest tribute that we can pay to any man is to say that he was a Christian gentleman in practice, and that was true of Olof Hanson. We join today in expressing our sympathy to his wife and family and pray that they will have the comfort that always comes from Him who promised to give comfort.

Mr. E. T. Applewhaite (Skeena):

May I take this opportunity of expressing my personal thanks to the hon. member for Fort William (Mr. Mclvor) for what he has said. Instead of taking a great deal of the time of the house, I should merely like to say that if, when I cease to be the member for Skeena, I can be held in the same esteem as was Mr. Hanson I shall think I have done my job well.
