Hon. William Scott (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Veterans Affairs):
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to remember the life and parliamentary contribution of a former colleague who represented Vancouver East from 1953 until 1972, Harold Edward Winch.
February 3, 1993
An electrician by trade Harold was very proud of his work and role as a founding member of the New Democratic Party and the CCF before that.
I served with Harold from the time I came here in 1965 until 1972. Although I have not had the pleasure of talking with him for many years, my memories of him are of a jovial, hard-working member who cared deeply for his constituents.
On behalf of the Progressive Conservative Party, I join with all members in this House and the former members who knew him in expressing my condolences to his friends and family.
Those who contribute so much to others are always missed in the community but they are never forgotten.
Subtopic: THE LATE HAROLD EDWARD WINCH
