CONGRATULATIONS TO HON. MEMBER FOR HURON ON FIFTIETH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

PC

John George Diefenbaker (Prime Minister)

Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, unusual occasions demand that unusual actions be taken. I am sure the house will permit me on this unusual occasion, the celebration by one of our members of his fiftieth wedding anniversary, to mention this event. I am sure I speak on behalf of all hon. members in the house when I express to him, and through him to his wife, the warmest congratulations and felicitations, coupled with the hope for many more years of health and happiness.

Hon. Paul Martin (Essex East):

Mr. Speaker, as the Prime Minister has said this is an unusual procedure to which we are resorting, but since we are the masters of our own rules in this house it ought to be possible for us to recognize a unique occasion. The Leader of the Opposition has suggested that since I come from the same section of the province of Ontario as does the hon. member whom we are recognizing at this moment I might, on behalf of the Leader of the Opposition and the members of this party, extend our very sincere congratulations to the hon. member and to his wife. We can only hope that when he celebrates his centenary, he will then be celebrating it under different political auspices.

Mr. Hazen Argue (Assiniboia):

I wish to make it unanimous, Mr. Speaker, and with real sincerity I wish on behalf of the C.C.F. group to extend our congratulations to the

hon. member for Huron. We have been in the house together for many years. I have always considered him a very good friend and have enjoyed working with him, particularly when he had the post of chief government whip. This is a very important occasion, and it is a great pleasure for me to extend to him and to his wife our congratulations and best wishes on their fiftieth wedding anniversary, in the hope that they will have many more years of health and happiness together.

Mr. L. E. Cardiff (Huron):

Mr. Speaker, I find myself in a very embarrassing position this morning as a result of the fact that I had the misfortunate to lose a tooth and I had to send my denture out to be fixed. I assure you that it was not because my wife hit me. I wish to thank those who have been kind enough to remember my fiftieth wedding anniversary. I can only say "thank you".
