Hon. George A. Drew (Leader of the Opposition):
I know that every member of the house, Mr. Speaker, will join with the remarks of the Prime Minister in extending to Madame Nadon, and the family of the late member for Gatineau, the sympathy of all those with
The late J. C. Nadon
whom he has been associated since he entered this house in 1949. At that time, when he came here, following the appointment of the present Clerk of the House, he established a wide circle of friends, and to all of us it was a great shock to learn of the sudden and tragic death that removed him from the house. As has been pointed out by the Prime Minister (Mr. St. Laurent), like so many other members he served his own community well and in many capacities before entering the House of Commons. As mayor, chosen by his own people, he had been closely associated with their lives.
In addition to the very deep sympathy we all express to his family, there is also our sympathy to the community with which he has been so long associated.
