Mr. Speaker, it is a great pleasure to make what may be my last statement in the House of Commons on a high note.
The town of Kemptville is in my riding of Leeds-Grenville not far from here. Its Junior "B" hockey team has gone through the 1996-97 regular season undefeated. The team's record is 38 zero and four. In the seven game playoffs, which the team won four games to three, it won the final game four to three in double overtime.
I do not know whether any other team in Canadian hockey history can match that record but it is a record of which we are all very proud. Head coach Paul Sheard and assistant coach Derek Rintoul are proud.
Congratulations to the Kemptville '73s. All of eastern Ontario is very proud of them.
