Mr. Theogene Ricard (St. Hyacinthe-Bagot):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to extend the most heartfelt welcome to the hon. member for Quebec East, the parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Public Works (Mr. Tassd).
Last fall, the hon. member for Quebec East was the victim of a street accident, which kept him away from his office for several months. I know I am expressing the feeling of all in extending to him the most heartfelt welcome and wishing him full recovery at the earliest possible date.
