Hon. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):
Madam Speaker, just a few words about the sad passing yesterday of Mr. Barrett, the former member for Lincoln. He was one of the class of '68. When I was first elected in 1968 there were 96 of us and Mr. Barrett was a member of Parliament at that time. He served one term, from 1968 to 1972.
I remember him as a member of the House who was well liked. He was a very congenial person who had friends in all three national political parties. He was very active in the committees of the House, very concerned about his constituents and concerned about his country.
On behalf of our party I want to extend to his family our very sincere condolences.
Subtopic: THE LATE GORDON "CHUB" BARRETT
