Mr. FERNAND VIAU (St. Boniface) (Translation):

Mr. Speaker, as the representative not only of the electoral constituency but of the city of St. Boniface, that bulwark of the French language in western Canada,

I am pleased to share in the eulogy so ably expressed by the Right Hon. Prime Minister (Mr. Mackenzie King) as well as by the Right Hon. Minister for External Affairs (Mr. St. Laurent), in memory of the man for whom the people of this country are now mourning, the late Mr. Cardin.

It will be remembered that our fellow citizens in western Canada have often had to struggle not only for their language but for their faith. In those struggles many Quebec voices then joined those of the French Canadians of western Canada and among those voices there was one we shall never forget, and that was the voice of the man whose loss we now mourn.

When, a few years ago, we celebrated the centenary of La Verendrye, the rich and ringing voice of Mr. Cardin was heard in St. Boniface where he addressed a very large audience. And now, his relatives mourn the loss of a distinguished Canadian, the nation mourns the loss of an illustrious citizen, the Commons, the loss of a member who was so faithful.

Thus, the French Canadians of western Canada wish to extend their deepest sympathy to all who have sorrowed and still sorrow over the loss of this unforgettable Canadian.
