Right Hon. Joe Clark (Leader of the Opposition):
Madam Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, concerning the sudden death yesterday of Japanese Prime Minister Masayoshi Ohira. Mr. Ohira was recognized by his colleagues around the world for his sage advice and considered counsel.
We in this House were honoured to have Mr. Ohira speak to us only last month. His closing words to this Parliament are a fitting tribute to his ideals, and I quote his words:
The rich life that we strive for is a life that rewards us with deeper satisfactions. We strive to create a world where our children and grandchildren can feel proud to be born into.
We in this House, Madam Speaker, are indeed proud to have known Mr. Ohira. Therefore I move, seconded by the right hon. Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau):
That this House convey to the government of Japan, and the family of Prime Minister Ohira, its condolence over the death of our friend, Masayoshi Ohira.
