John Angus MacLean

Progressive Conservative

Hon. J. A. MacLean (Queens):

Mr. Speaker, any position I might hold, during the making of my few brief remarks, is even more ephemeral than that of the hon. member on the government side, but I wish to take this opportunity to wish you a pleasant recess, a refreshing rest and a happy Easter. Much may come about before you come back again to preside over this difficult chamber.
I wish also to take this opportunity of hoping that my friends to the left have a pleasant recess and a happy Easter. I hope their recess is of a very high quality; it will have to be, to make up for its unnecessary brevity.
It is rather difficult to ask members on the government side to be happy. It appears that the stars foretell that in events lying ahead eight out of nine members will be deeply disappointed. Regardless of their feelings of disappointment I hope that hon. members on the government side will have the strength to bear their disappointments. Happy Easter.
