Mr. James Sinclair (Coasl-Capilano):
Mr. Speaker, I rise to say a few words on a question of privilege. Hon. members will have read in the newspapers of the extensive floods in British Columbia last week, mainly in my riding in the districts of West and North Vancouver. Now that these floods have more or less subsided I know those people would want me to express in parliament their appreciation of the great work which was done by the army, both reserve and permanent forces, in British Columbia at that time. The 6th field company of the reserve army responded immediately, and were soon followed by the engineers from the permanent force camp at Chilliwack, who built three Bailey bridges and restored communications. As at the time of the Fraser valley floods, the people of British Columbia again are appreciative of the great value of such a body of trained and skilled men in a time of local disaster.
