Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):
Mr. Speaker, under Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House to submit an extremely important motion.
Considering that the late Commander Alphonse Desjardins was an official French-language stenographer at the House of Commons for a quarter of a century;
Considering that in addition to numerous other achievements, he was the founder of the first caisse populaire in Quebec and in Canada;
Considering that Quebecers are especially proud of so great a Canadian, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):
That this House congratulate the Postmaster General of Canada for having authorized the issue of a postage stamp to commemorate so great a Canadian, and that this House express its wishes that his work continue to prosper throughout all of Canada.
