December 18, 1963

Mr. Denis:

Mr. Chairman, allow me to thank all hon. members and all those who contributed to the passage of my estimates. I thank them for the flowers, but somewhat less for the thorns. Fortunately, they were not too prickly and I think I can stand it.

However, with regard to my possible appointment to the Senate, it would be difficult for me to satisfy everybody. Some people want to send me to the other place, and others want to keep me here. I cannot cut myself in two and I suggest that the decision should be left to those responsible. Then we will know if the house loses or the Senate gains.
