John Patrick (Pat) Nowlan

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Nowlan:

Because he prefaced his remarks on the apple industry and you would not recognize me, you did a great disservice to the apple growers of the Annapolis Valley. Because the bells rang yesterday afternoon I did not want to create a constitutional conference and crisis. If I had come in in my garb as I did in the Question Period, I would have put the Table, the Clerk, the Greffier, Mr. Marleau, and you in an unconscionable position as to whether or not to count my vote. Quite frankly, most of the votes yesterday did not matter a gosh darn anyway.

Topic:   ORAL QUESTION PERIOD
Subtopic:   REQUEST FOR REFERENCE OF DRESS CODE TO STANDING COMMITTEE
