Mr. J. S. WOODSWORTH (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, the late Mr. Wilton did not belong to our group, but he sat in close proximity to us, and I sometimes think that proximity is a rather severe test of a man's qualities. I feel that in the short period he was in the house he revealed himself to us as being friendly and kind. I can think of no other words that would better describe him.
