Mr. Hamilton (York West):

I do not think I have ever been accused of making a "me too" speech in this chamber and I do not wish to do so now; nor do I wish to take any time which could be devoted by the minister to answering questions on a vital matter. However, I would be remiss if I did not echo the remarks of the hon. member for Peel in connection with the satisfaction that I know the people of York West feel in finally seeing this program for the metropolitan Toronto and region conservation authority having a chance to be completed.

I think there is a fair amount of personal satisfaction for any hon. member of the house in seeing a project which has been close to him during his period of office, finally come within sight of completion. This is something which has been close to us in my area since 1954 and for very obvious reasons, namely because of the tremendous loss of life in York West during the period of hurricane Hazel. There have been many intermediate steps. 1 think the tribute paid to the conservation authority of the district was well earned. I think all of those in the metropolitan area who continued to bring to the attention of the government the need for completion of this project deserve a great deal of thanks.

I might say to the hon. member for Bona-vista-Twillingate that it is very easy on occasion to have legislation enacted by the house but it is a very different thing to see it implemented. We therefore greatly appreciate the move which the minister has made at this time.

Mr. Speaker,

I wonder whether we could have unanimous consent of the house to carry on?

Mr. John B. Hamilton (York West):

Mr. Speaker, I am wondering whether we might take private bills and then, I believe, we probably could obtain the consent of the whole house to forgo the rest of the private members' hour and return to the discussion of the estimates.

Mr. Hamilton (York West):

I think the item should carry without an undertaking as broad as the one mentioned. I think on the first item of each of the forces' estimates there could be a fairly broad discussion within the realm of the force in question, but to agree that every item should be discussed on a broad general basis would not, I think, be possible.

Mr. Hamilton (York West):

Mr. Speaker, I wonder whether the house would consider giving unanimous consent to carry on with the business of the house which was just suspended?
