Mr. P. C. BLACK (Cumberland):
May I be allowed, on behalf of the late Mr. Christie's family and his friends, in my home town and that of the Minister of National Defence (Mr. Ralston), to express my thanks to the Prime Minister (Mr. Mackenzie King) and to the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Hanson) for their kindly references to Mr. Christie. Mr. Christie came of the best blood in the mari-times. He had energy, ambition, and industry. He associated with the ablest and most outstanding men in this country, in Great Britain, and in the United States. His death is a very great loss to Canada and to British people everywhere.
