July 21, 1975 (30th Parliament, 1st Session)

PC

Walter C. Carter

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Carter:

I might add that the petition is signed by the Premier of the province, the Hon. Frank D. Moores, by the leader of the official opposition in the Newfoundland legislature, Mr. Ed. Roberts, the leader of the recently formed Liberal Reform Party, the Hon. J. R. Smallwood, and by the president of the Newfoundland Fishermen's and Allied Workers' Union, Mr. Richard Cashin, a former member of this House. I might also say that to get those four gentlemen to agree with each other long enough to put their names on a single piece of paper is in itself quite a feat, and parliament should recognize that fact by their congratulations.
