Being a student of politics, Randall Garrison, MP, a New Democratic Party member "reached across the aisle" to show & pay proper tribute to a member opposite he respects. Future Parliamentarians can look up to Randy for showing the ultimate in dignity to the Hon. Laurie Hawn, PC, MP, Conservative, Edmonton-Centre, & a retired Royal Canadian Air Force Lt.-Colonel & fighter pilot (who I might add served with distinction), especially as its on the record in the Official Hansard for all time!
"Mr. Speaker, I have great respect for the honourable member for Edmonton-Centre & for his service to the country. He & I have always had a great relationship."
Number CXIX (119),
