Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Acting Prime Minister):
Mr. Speaker, we are about to resume the discharge of our responsibilities for the nation's business, which we suspended on Friday after receiving the shocking news of the death of the late president of the United States. Just two hours ago in Washington the nation that President Kennedy led so brilliantly, joined by the representatives of countries far and near, paid a last formal tribute to him. As a mark of our respect and sorrow I should like to suggest to the house that before we turn to the business of the day the members stand for one minute in silent tribute.
[Whereupon the house stood in silence for one minute.]
Subtopic: SILENT TRIBUTE TO THE LATE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
