Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):
Mr. Speaker, this being Canada's 85th birthday as a nation, I should like to suggest, supported by the leader of the opposition (Mr. Drew) and, I hope, by all hon. members, that we mark our proud and happy loyalty to our great country and to our gracious sovereign lady by rising and singing together "O Canada" and "God Save the Queen".
Whereupon the members of the house rose and sang
O Canada and
God Save the Queen.
