Mr. Groos:

Mr. Speaker, the purpose of this bill is twofold; first, to give the members of the House of Commons and, through them, the people of Canada an opportunity to show in a simple, practical way their high regard and affection for the person of the Queen of Canada; and second, to act as a constant reminder of the role of the sovereign, a role which throughout Canadian history has served in large measure to protect the rights, the freedoms and the just aspirations of both founding nations and of all minority groups.
