Nelson Andrew Riis (N.D.P. House Leader)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Riis:

Madam Speaker, on a short point of order. The motion we just voted on was put forward in the name of the hon. member for Regina-Lumsden. In a few more days he will have served 25 years in the House. This is probably the last motion he will put before the House of Commons. I thought the members would want to give him a hand for his many years of service.

The hon. member for Regina-Lumsden has been a long-standing member of our House. This may be his last motion but we will miss him.

Leslie Gordon Benjamin

New Democratic Party

Mr. Les Benjamin (Regina-Lumsden):

Madam Speaker, I appreciate the thoughtfulness of my House leader, my colleague, and I appreciate those who supported me on this matter.

I am so saddened by the fact that my motion encompassed the things the government members spoke in favour of when they were the opposition and VIA Rail was ruined. I deliberately incorporated their wording.

I am sorry to say this but I cannot stand those who go back on their own word.
