Order. May I take this
moment to direct the attention of hon. members to the presence in the Speaker's gallery this afternoon of the commissioner of the Northwest Territories, Mr. B. G. Sivertz, and the members of the council of the Northwest Territories.
This important legislative body, which has the responsibility for governing an area of 1J million square miles in Canada's far north, has been in session in Ottawa over the past 10 days. I am sure that the commissioner and his council would want me to express to the house their appreciation that meeting space has been made available on the hill for this twenty ninth session of the parliament of the north.
