Mr. L. E. Roberge (Slanslead):

I should like to rise on a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker, to point out to hon. members that longevity still prevails in Canada, especially in the county of Stanstead, which I have the honour to represent. This very day Mrs. Alma Gardyne is celebrating her hundredth birthday anniversary, and on your behalf, Mr. Speaker, and on behalf of all hon. members, I extend to her best wishes for happiness and good health. She is now vacationing at Eagle Point. In the little town of Beebe, Quebec, Mrs. Gardyne has a cousin, Mrs. Emma Moir, who is 105 years old and still in good health. I suggest that hon. members who would like to live to a good old age should move to Stanstead county. To both these ladies we send our very best wishes and say ad multos annos.

The house in committee of supply, Mr. Beaudoin in the chair.
