Mr. Bill Casey (Cumberland -Colchester):

Madam Speaker, along the shoreline near Joggins, Nova Scotia, a small community in my riding located at the head of the Bay of Fundy, there are high cliffs which are continually washing away. As the cliffs wash away a treasure in fossils is being released. For decades one man has been there collecting this scarce evidence of our past. That man is Mr. Don Reid.
This weekend he opened the new fossil centre in Joggins where he will share one of the most unique collections of fossils in the world with people from all over the world. The centre was built through the co-operative efforts of the community, the province and the federal government and, of course, Mr. Don Reid. The committee in charge of the project was successfully led by John Reid from Joggins.
I congratulate Don, John and the community for their involvement in the Joggins fossil centre. If anyone wants to see Don he will still be down showing others where the fossils are and explaining exactly what they mean.
