Mr. JEAN FRANCOIS POULIOT (Temis-couata):
I am sure, Mr. Speaker, that the
few words that I am going to read will be greeted by unanimous and thunderous applause in this house. I desire, sir, to inscribe in Hansard the splendid tribute which was paid to this country two days ago by no less a person than Mr. Churchill, speaking in Washington. He said:
In the meantime we do our best to keep the closest association at every level between all the authorities of all the countries who are engaged in the active direction of the war. And it is my special duty to promote and preserve this intimacy and concert between all parts of the British commonwealth and empire and especially with the great self-governing dominions like Canada whose Prime Minister is with us at this moment, whose contribution is so massive and invaluable.
This is what was said by Mr. Churchill at the joint session of congress in Washington; and if I may be permitted, sir, to refer you to the first paragraph of the first column on page 2460 of Hansard of May 6, believe it or not, sir, this cannot be a mere coincidence-; it is quite certain that Mr. Churchill never misses a speech by the -mem; ber for Temiscouata in this house.
