Mr. J. H. BLACKMORE (Lethbridge):

Mr. Speaker, judging from the manifest sincerity of the words of esteem with which previous speakers have praised the life of the late Mr. Marcil, and of the tone in which they were uttered, I deem it a privilege to join my voice with those who have already honoured him. It has been written: Blessed is he who has found his work; let him seek no greater blessedness. This man evidently had found his work, and ably he did it. During much of my life I have felt that one of the greatest blessings would be that of having the privilege of dying in harness. Mr. Marcil was blessed thus, and it can therefore be said that he has been blessed both in his living and in his dying. Our group rejoices to honour such a man.
