Hon. C. G. POWER (Minister of Pensions and National Health):

May I thank my
hon. friend the leader of the opposition (Mr. Manion) for his kindness and courtesy in extending his best wishes and those of his party on this occasion. I do not suppose I have reached an age when I can afford or would like to enter into any philosophical dissertation as to the experiences, good and bad, which I have had in the twenty-five years during which I have been a member of this house, but there is one thing I should like to point out, and it has been well exemplified to-day. It is this: Whatever else the house may be, it is tolerant, as has been indicated by the remarks of my hon. friend and the applause, coming from all sides of the house, which greeted them.
