Leo Kemner Laflamme

Mr. Lallamme:

Mr. Speaker, the lesson has been taught the Conservatives for the past twenty years, that is to say the Liberals have been teaching the Conservatives a lesson in bilingualism for twenty years.
I merely wanted to tell the house how gratifying it was to me to see that two representatives of different parties in this house took the trouble of expressing themselves in both official languages of this country, and I congratulate them sincerely. Their gesture was a commendable one, which should be repeated. Such a gesture was started and stressed, as it will be in the future, by the party to which I belong, the Liberal party.
