Mr. Maurice A. Dionne (Miramichi):

Mr. Speaker, I will probably find this somewhat difficult to express, but I must speak on this issue. It is a moral issue as far as I am concerned. It is not just an ordinary situation.

I suspect that most of us in this House have at one time or another had a loved one who suffered seriously in his or her dying weeks or months. That is very difficult to accept and it is very difficult to forget.

However, we were given no guarantees when we were bom, when we were conceived. We were not told that we were going to be happy all our lives or that we would suffer no pain. It seems to me that if we deviate from what I have studied and what I have learned with regard to life and its sanctity, then I cannot vote for a motion that would take a human life. To do so, to me, would be murder. To do so, to me, would be a betrayal of all of the things I have tried to stand for in my personal and public

lives. Therefore, if this motion comes before the House for a vote, I will naturally be voting against it.

Mr. Maurice A. Dionne (Miramichi):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask a question of my colleague on this shemozzle that is now called the post office. In his area of the country were the rural post offices tom out and thrown away? Were the people who went to meetings given any kind of rational approach to what the post office is doing? Did they send out these PR people with packaged information, or disinformation I should say, and try to come up with a scheme whereby they would have the people completely confused? I know that is what has happened in my own riding. It made no difference what we said, what kind of argument we put. They were programmed and that was the only answer we could get from them.
