Mr. John Finlay (Oxford)

Mr. Speaker, I want to express my appreciation and that of my hon. colleagues in the House for the opportunity last Thursday to attend a special screening of the film "Schindler's List".

Many hon. members and senators along with staff members took advantage of the kind invitation of the hon. member for Ontario. In his welcoming remarks he warned us that "Schindler's List" is a powerful film which makes explicit the facts of the holocaust and the lessons to be learned from it.

As we prepare for a special debate on peacekeeping in Bosnia it is appropriate that we reflect on the genocide, violence and inhumanity of the holocaust. Similar evils seem rampant in Bosnia.

In conclusion I again thank the hon. member for Ontario for his timely initiative.

Mr. FINLAY.

For the satisfaction of the hon. member for East Sirncoe, I may say that I was present when Mr. Conroy asked for his cheque to be returned to him, and I heard the minister refuse to give it! The hon. member for East Sirncoe says that Mr. Conroy has no financial standing. I can say, of my own knowledge, that Mr. Lonroy is worth $30,000.

BENNETT; I Simply stated that he had no financial rating in Bradstreet.

wmfh i There are many men

worth $30 000 whose names are not mentioned ni Bradstreet at all.
