September 29, 1967

Mr. Eric A. Winkler (Grey-Bruce):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege today to say to the house that I hope in my ten and a half years as a member I may have made some responsible contribution to the annals of this historic parliamentary institution. I should like to thank every member in every part of the house for their co-operation and for the friendly associations I have had during this time.

I wish also, Mr. Speaker, to express my gratitude for the co-operation of departmental officials and of every staff member of the House of Commons, as well as recognizing the co-operation of members of the press gallery. Last but not least, Mr. Speaker, I wish to thank you for the tolerance and patience as well as the courtesies you have extended to me.

May I hope for future blessings on this great country and on all those who work with pride and dedication for its future. And now, Mr. Speaker, I bid you all au revoir.

Mr. Speaker, I have just one friendly world in reply. The good services of my future office will be available to the minister as well as to everyone else.

Mr. Winkler:

Before directing a supplementary question, Mr. Speaker, I wish to acknowledge the good wishes of my hon. friend, and I can assure him I could never depend on his support for what I have in mind for my future. I might add that I had a sensible, responsible farewell speech prepared, but in the light of what has occurred earlier today I wish to say I agree with some hon. members who said that the Canadian people may have reason to be disgusted, particularly with some of the people on my left.

Mr. Eric A. Winkler (Grey-Bruce):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to direct a question to the Minister of Transport. Will he assure the house that in any action to approve the application of channel 3 for its licence he will have cabinet approval?

Mr. Winkler:

With reference to the minister's reply regarding channel 3, I would simply ask him whether he will meet the very unique protests made by some of his backbenchers, and some of his front benchers, which have been in line with what I have requested, because I do not believe-and I say this frankly and directly-that approval of this application will be in the best interests of television.
