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