Mr. Auguste Choquette (Lotbiniere):
Mr. Speaker, at the risk of being out of order, I wish to point out that the Quebec fleur-de-lis will be celebrating within the next few days the twentieth anniversary of its official recognition. That flag is more than the emblem of the province of Quebec. It is a rallying symbol for the French speaking community in Canada.
In closing, I say it would be desirable that, in certain circumstances, it be flown on parliament hill, beside our unifoliate, as a symbol of the harmony between the two great linguistic communities of Canada.
Subtopic: MR. CHOQUETTE-REQUEST THAT FLAG DISPLAYING FLEUR-DE-LIS BE FLOWN ON PARLIAMENT HILL
