Madam Deputy Speaker:

Before putting the question to the House I would like to say a few words.

It seems somehow different to close a session. I just said a little while ago that I do not see the member for Saint-Denis, now Senator Prud'homme, being the very last member to speak. I can just see him somehow opening the door in the lobby. I know he could not resist. I will at least greet him in the name of all our members.

Colleagues, a few weeks ago I undertook a huge responsibility when our Speaker became ill. If I can use the vernacular that was common in my former life I would say that being John Fraser's understudy is not an easy task. He is and will remain one of the great Speakers that this House has ever known and the tribute that was offered to him today proves it abundantly.

If it was relatively easy for me to do this job I owe it to members from all sides of the House, from the government side, the opposition, the NDP and our independent members as well.

I would like to thank those who made that little extra effort or extended the everyday courtesies which made my life easier. Of course, our Clerk, his assistant and all his team are dedicated and talented people who are always there to help the person occupying the chair, as well as to help hon. members.

You will also allow me to say a brief word of thanks to my team, both on the Hill and in my riding, who worked extra hard.

I want to say thank you as well to the Speaker's staff who were really fantastic, who accepted me as one of the family, as we were all praying for Mr. Speaker's recovery.

To all of you, to our pages, to those of you who direct them and help them, we will miss you. I do hope that you miss us. Thank you very much.

Is the House ready for the question?
