Major James William Coldwell

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. M. J. COLDWELL (Rosetown-Biggar):

Mr. Speaker, we too would associate ourselves with the words of sympathy of the leader of the opposition for the members on the government side of the house, and would join with

the Acting Prime Minister in his expression of sympathy for the family in their susdden bereavement. Mr. Durocher was a member of the radio committee and I knew him there perhaps better than elsewhere. He was a courteous, kindly gentleman whom we all mourn. This sad occasion once again brings home to us in this house, shall I say, the wear of public life, as evidenced in the occasions on which from time to time we have to mourn the loss of one of our members. We join, Mr. Speaker, in the expressions of sympathy that have already been uttered.
