Mr. M. J. Coldwell (Roseiown-Biggar):

Is

it not usual when an appointment of this description is made by order in council to have the terms of reference tabled and given to parliament? Is this not a most unusual

procedure, showing entire disregard for the regular parliamentary procedure?

Mr. Coldwell:

As my hon. friend interjects, the figures are still rising according to the more recent figures that have been given to us. I therefore say that we have the right to say to this government, "What are you doing about the situation, and what did you do about it in the autumn of last year?"

Mr. Coldwell:

I have always thought I was in the right party, and as long as I think so I shall remain in what I consider to be the right party.

I join, too, in wishing him health and strength so that he may carry on in the high office to which he has been called by the party; now, of course, occupying as he does -what shall I say-the third highest position in this House of Commons; first the Speaker, then the Prime Minister and then the leader of Her Majesty's loyal opposition. In that capacity we wish him well, and it is a capacity I hope he will fill in this house for at least some time.

I am not going to express a further opinion on this occasion; but, Mr. Speaker, we wish to join the Prime Minister in what he has said regarding the hon. member for Quebec East and the hon. member for Algoma East. We hope both will find happiness in the days to come.
