Bernard Dumont

Ralliement Créditiste

Mr. Bernard Dumont (Frontenac):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege. I should like to inform the House that, as of this day, I shall no longer represent the constituency of Frontenac. I am resigning with the satisfaction of having discharged my responsibilities. Other duties will enable me to return to Ottawa in order to negotiate the rights of Quebec, after April 29.
I urge the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau) to take the advice of the right hon. member for Prince Albert (Mr. Diefenbaker) and get married so as to be able to grasp the human problems facing all Canadians.
Mr. Speaker, to you and to all my colleagues I say that the experience gained in this House is highly valuable. I thank you all for your understanding, but we will surely meet again.
Som hon. Members: Hear, hear!
