Mr. J. T. RICHARD (Ottawa East):

Mr. Speaker, the flowers which are in front of the Prime Minister are an expression of the feelings of the members of "Little Chicago" who take great pride in having a leader who has exceeded the record of any other prime minister in the British commonwealth of nations. We are proud to serve under him, and we hope his example during the years past will serve us when it comes our turn to lead in future.
As the member for Ottawa East, however, may I say that my constituency has as its most distinguished elector the Prime Minister of Canada, and I want to tell him that we, the people of Ottawa, are grateful to him for what he has done for this city, and trust he will stay with us for a long time to come.
Mr. SOLON E. LOW (Peace River): Mr. Speaker, I was unable to be here yesterday. I had fully expected that the felicitations to the Prime Minister on having achieved his very fine record would come today; but since this opportunity has been afforded I should like to join the others who have spoken, and to extend to the Prime Minister my very sincere felicitations on this occasion, together with my very best wishes for many years of happiness and good health.
