Martha Louise Black

Independent Conservative

Mrs. MARTHA LOUISE BLACK (Yukon):

Mr. Speaker, it seems to me that I would be derelict in my duty to the women of my beloved constituency in the north and to the women of Canada generally if I did not join my voice to the voices of the right hon. Prime Minister (Mr. Mackenzie King) and my right

hon. leader (Mr. Bennett). Her Majesty the Queen has set the women of Canada an example of devotion to home life, devotion to family and devotion to the business that comes up every day by which we must all profit, and I should like to be allowed to join in this tribute of regret and sympathy to that beautiful woman.
