Mr. John Kushner (Calgary East):
Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Terry Fox, through his "Marathon of Hope", has joined the ranks of our oustanding Canadian heroes in the fight against cancer. To those people suffering from this dreaded disease in Canada and all over the world, it is Terry Fox who has given them hope through his courage and determination. Most of us have lost someone dear to cancer, just as I lost my dad. Terry Fox has given special pride to Canadians and has touched the hearts of us all.
In recognition of Terry Fox and the "Marathon of Hope" in the fight against cancer, I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. Catharines (Mr. Reid):
That this House extend to Terry Fox hearty congratulations and thanks on behalf of all Canadians, and furthermore, that the government strike a suitable stamp to commemorate Terry Fox and the "Marathon of Hope".
