Mr. Speaker:

Order. On the eve of the 98th anniversary of Canada's Confederation I ask leave to make an announcement of interest and importance to all hon. Members, which should be of significance to all Canadians.

In the tragic fire of 1916 that destroyed the old Centre Block we lost one of the finest historical treasures, the monumental oil painting by Robert Harris of the Fathers of Confederation. That famous painting, which only exists now in copy, depicts the Quebec Conference of 1864. I know all hon. Members will be delighted to learn that an exact restoration of the Robert Harris painting is to be presented to the nation by Confederation Life Association. It will be hung in the Parliament Buildings, hopefully well before July 1, 1967. The artist commissioned for this challenging task is Mr. Rex Woods, of Toronto, who is noted for his portrayal of persons and events from Canada's past.

The success of our forthcoming centennial hinges on the imagination and leadership of government at all levels, voluntary and other organizations, business and individuals. I am sure this gift to the nation from Confederation Life will help to make Canadian history come alive, both for our own people and for those of other lands.
