I even went so far as to suggest at one point that he read a book of mine about 23 years ago. At any rate, in his speech the Prime Minister declared that the Liberals had been concerned about old age pensions, medicare, unemployment, and economic conditions. He further stated that the Liberals have always been concerned about peace rather than war, in particular the late Prime Minister Pearson. However, we are aware that a few days ago a peace award was announced for the present Prime Minister.
He also made the point that it should be a concern for all people in this country that they have equality of their rights, regardless of race, colour, or religion.
Although the Prime Minister is leaving, I hope he will continue to use all the efforts he can with regard to his Party and the other Parties, as well as with all Canadians, so that it will be a major concern of this place to deal with those problems which the Prime Minister spoke of on June 14.
