Almonte Douglas Alkenbrack

Progressive Conservative

Mr. A. D. Alkenbrack (Frontenac-Lennox and Addington):

Mr. Speaker, because of the established strength and greatness of this country, this broad Dominion of Canada, I would not have thought it necessary that any member of the House should take up time on this or any other day in an effort to change the name of our great national holiday, Dominion Day, which was laid down by the Fathers of Confederation, to some other name. I am proud to speak on behalf of most of the citizens of the constituency of Frontenac-Lennox and Addington who prefer to maintain the name "Dominion Day".
