Hon. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I am grateful to the Prime Minister for the comments that he has made. I express the hope that he will make the point to the members of his Party and to other Parties that the organization that is strongest in pressing for pensions, health care and other matters, the one that has done the most and the one that mostly deserves support, is the Party of the NDP.

Mr. Knowles:

My question is directed to the Prime Minister. I trust he will forgive me if I repeat an issue that I discussed with him personally a few days ago. I referred to the fact that at the Liberal Convention which was held here on June 14, 15 and 16,1 felt that the most important speech at that gathering was made by the present Prime Minister.

Mr. Knowles:

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.
