Mr. A. A. HEAPS (Winnipeg North):

Mr. Speaker, I desire to associate myself with what has been said respecting our late colleague, Mr. Edwards. I am sure it will be consoling to his family to know of the high esteem in which he was held by members of the house. In my association with him I always looked upon him as a kindly and generous man, one who had no hate in him. Such characteristics in these days are in certain quarters no longer regarded as virtues, and it is well that we lay special emphasis upon them. With the other members of the group to which I belong, I wish to associate myself with what has been so well said by those who have preceded me.
