Most Recent Speeches (Page 1 of 51)


April 5, 1960

Mr. Antonio Barrette:

Certain things have occurred in the past.

Then there is a subtile in larger print:

Today we must go hand in hand with Ottawa.

And now here is a clipping from La Presse for Monday, March 28, 1960, which goes into greater detail on this political speech made by the premier of my province. The story starts with the same quotation:

Certain things have occurred in the past.

Farther down, the article goes on to say:

Thanks to the new climate now existing between Quebec and Ottawa, we have been able to solve problems which had been outstanding for years ... Ottawa is now treating us like friends. As long as they themselves will co-operate, I will never regret to co-operate with the central government, to give them a true hand-in-hand co-operation.

To conclude this first part of my remarks, I would add that under the former Liberal government, the door was not closed, but that it was the premier of the province of Quebec who closed it on his way out.

I do not intend to comment on those statements at this time, since we will probably have the opportunity to deal with them during the debate on the second reading of the federal-provincial tax-sharing arrangement bill.

Mr. Speaker, I believe it is the appropriate time to ask you to say it is now ten o'clock. (Text):
