Mr. MacRae:

In rising to speak for the first time in this house, Mr. Chairman, I would first like to pay a tribute to the hon. minister who heads the department and whose estimates we are now considering. The hon. minister is spokesman for the province in which we are now living, but he is also a veteran of distinguished service to his country, firstly as an officer in the New Brunswick fighting 26th battalion during world war I; secondly, he has rendered continuous service between the wars in the militia of this country; thirdly, he served throughout the whole of world war II, and now lastly on account of his record as a member of parliament for 22 years. During this period he has been almost continuously a member of the veterans affairs committee. His record is there and it speaks for itself.

It has been said that the Canadian veterans legislation is the best in the world. I think we all agree with that, Mr. Chairman, and it is a tribute to all of those who have served in the previous parliaments of this country.
