Mr. Bill Vankoughnet (Hastings-Frontenac):
Speaker, 1 rise on a matter of urgent and pressing importance under the provisions of Standing Order 43.
Whereas Canada and Canadians in the course of the next year will focus their attention on a renewed constitution, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Scarborough West (Mr. Weatherhead):
That the House of Commons of Canada, approaching its 113th year, place on record its deep appreciation of the achievements of the Fathers of Confederation, and with a united voice express its faith and confidence in the future of this great country, and that this act of faith in our future will lead to a renewed inspiration of the patriotic fervour of Canadians and afford a clear vision of our aspirations and ideals so that in this coming year from sea to sea, we may develop a robust Canadian spirit of renewed national unity.
