VETERANS LAND ACT

CONSIDERATION BY SENATE OF BILL EXTENDING EXPIRY DEADLINE

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. Yesterday members of all parties in this House gave unanimous consent wherever it was necessary and co-operated thoroughly so that Bill C-17 could be passed through all its stages. Bill C-17 is the bill that extends the Veterans Land Act which otherwise would expire, or at least certain of its provisions would expire, on March 31.

I think it is generally understood that one of the reasons for yesterday's co-operation was so that this bill could be dealt with in the other place, finally passed and given Royal Assent before March 31. I have discovered this morning, Sir, that the Senate adjourned yesterday afternoon until eight o'clock Tuesday evening.

Mr. Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

I realize, Sir, that this House has no control over the other place unless we take the suggestion of my good friend from Edmonton Centre. However, the leader of the Senate is a member of the cabinet and therefore I believe it would be the will of this House to call upon the government to suggest to the leader of the government in the other place that that House should meet today or on Monday to deal with this legislation. I realize that no veteran will lose a grant because of this delay of two or three days, but the Senate knew the Veterans Land Act was coming to it-it is on the record-and its action is an insult not only to the members of this House but to the veterans of Canada.

Mr. Frank Howard (Skeena):

Mr. Speaker, I rise pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43 to seek the consent of the House to move a motion in a case of urgent and pressing necessity arising from the revelation yesterday that in fact there had been a study by the government of the lobster fishery in Nova Scotia and a report presented to the Department of Fisheries about the middle of last year which has not yet seen the light of day. I would therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Nanai-mo-Cowichan-The Islands (Mr. Douglas):

That this House calls upon the government forthwith to table the report arising out of the study made, as a result of the commitment by the Prime Minister in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, in July, 1971, into the relationship between the deep sea and the inshore lobster fishery in Nova Scotia.

Hon. Daniel J. MacDonald (Minister of Veterans Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, I am very pleased to announce that an official Canadian delegation will participate in the events in France this June commemorating the thirtieth anniversary of the Normandy landings. The ceremonies, organized by the Comite du Debarquement, have the approval and the support of the government of France.

The Canadian delegation will be headed by myself and the ambassador to France, the Hon. Leo Cadieux. It will include representatives of parliament, the armed forces, senior D-Day commanders, representatives of veterans organizations, and D-Day survivors from all the participating army units and from the Royal Canadian Navy and Royal Canadian Air Force.

March 29, 1974

Commemoration

The principal Canadian ceremony will take place on the afternoon of June 5 at the Canadian war cemetery at Beny-sur-Mer. The British and American ceremonies will be held on June 6.

I have arranged for the letters of invitation to the Canadians concerned to go out from my office today.

Mr. Jack Marshall (Humber-St. George's-St. Barbe):

Mr. Speaker, we in our party are pleased to hear the announcement by the minister that he and representatives of parliament will be attending the ceremonies commemorating the thirtieth anniversary of D-Day on June 5. I am sure it will be pleasing to those veterans who are members of parliament that parliament will be represented. I am pleased to note also that the ceremonies will take place at Beny-sur-Mer which is the landing place of Canadian forces on D-Day. I am sure that for those who attend the ceremonies it will bring back many memories after 30 years. We whole-heartedly agree with the announcement and look forward to participating with other members of parliament.

Mr. Max Saltsman (Waterloo-Cambridge):

Mr. Speaker, I welcome the announcement by the Minister of Veterans Affairs that an official Canadian delegation will participate in the events in France this June. It is hard to realize that the event being commemorated took place 30 years ago. On the particular date I was on a barge waiting to go into Beny-sur-Mer. I suppose there will be many stories told by veterans of that time, including those who drove right into Caen while it was still occupied by the enemy. For Canadians it will be a sentimental journey, a reminder of the idealism of those times and of the sacrifices that were made by men and women of this country in order to achieve greater freedom in Europe. In some ways I hope it will be a reminder to the Europeans that in many ways Canada is part of Europe and entitled to a voice in European councils. We in Canada would like to have that closer association with Europe. I think we in Canada have earned it.

Mr. Gilles Caouette (Charlevoix):

Mr. Speaker, I am very pleased with the announcement of the Minister of Veterans Affairs (Mr. MacDonald) to organize a Canadian delegation to the thirtieth anniversary of the Normandy landing.

I think it is a way for French Canadians to be reminded of the province of Quebec motto: "Je me souviens". Thirty years ago, Quebecers went to Europe to help some countries win a military as well as an ideological victory. I wish to congratulate the minister for organizing this delegation, but specially those who, thirty years ago, took part in the landing. I associate myself with the remarks made by the minister about those who died there.

Again, I commend the minister for this action.

(Mr. MacDonald (Cardigan).]
