Mr. Rose:

One Mark deserves another, perhaps.

Mr. Rose:

I know that all Hon. Members, even in their most rancorous moods, never forget that, despite our noises here, we are pretty fond of one another. I will miss all the people with whom I have become friends, both colleagues and staff, over the last 15 years, especially my Leader and my own colleagues.

Mr. Mark Rose (Mission-Port Moody):

I trust, Madam Speaker, that you will not subtract the time of the applause from my 90 seconds. I am under no illusions that what I have to say here today will blast the Lalonde budget controversy off the front pages of every major newspaper in the country. But what I have to say today is a matter of tremendous importance, at least to me.

I would like to say that I will soon be leaving this place, I guess forever, because I intend, as many Hon. Members know, to stand as a candidate for the legislature in British Columbia. Therefore, it means that pretty soon I will have to quit. I think that perhaps my action might be well emulated by others.

Mr. Rose:

And the IPU. Members of my Caucus have a unique place in my heart and I will certainly miss them. What

Oral Questions

I will not miss are the tedious plane rides, and mushing through a snowstorm on April 19.

Some men struggle all their lives to get here, and never make it. I have been honoured to be returned here four times, and I think it is in order that I thank my constituents for their loyalty and faith, if not patience. I trust I have deserved it.

In any case, the federal Government did Mr. Stuart Leg-gatt, a former Hon. Member, the honour of appointing him to the bench. Therefore the reason I am leaving is the Government's fault. We in the West blame everything on the Liberal Government, even the snow. But mostly we blame it for its lack of economic leadership, and we are serious about that because we desperately need leadership.

Seriously, however, I leave because I am genuinely concerned about some disturbing trends in the Province of British Columbia, and if I have any future political career I would like to make that contribution, and I am determined to make that contribution, to the political life of British Columbia, in British Columbia.

March 30, 1983

Mr. Rose:

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I understood that the Hon. Member for Edmonton West, who said he had made his point, had indicated to you that while he objected to the procedure, he was willing to go along with the decision which you had made and called a little earlier. That is my view. He did not say it perhaps explicitly, but he is a distinguished Hon. Member and fair minded. He is a former Speaker and is sensitive to these matters.

I appeal to him to let this matter proceed, if you need further word from him, on the ground that we have no intention in this Party of making any deals which would interfere with the order of his Bills at all. It was a matter that I voluntarily gave up my place to my colleague. I will certainly lose my place because I have given it up. That does not interfere with the place of the Hon. Member for Edmonton West's Bills at all. I am interested in his argument. I respect his decision. However, I believe he indicated to you that while he felt another way when he was walking in here, he respected your

decision that there was unanimous consent. That is where I will leave it.
