Statement made on 14 May 2009 by Senator Jim Munson

Hon. Jim Munson:

Honourable senators, I have a special tribute to give to a senator, a friend of ours. I think he will have a birthday very soon. His name is Senator Smith.

What can we say about Good Senator Smith
We could write a book about him, that is no myth
Let's take a small look at just what he has done
For people here, there — in fact for everyone

As a young man, he got the political itch
And thus began his odyssey and there was never a glitch
A political wizard he has always been
And he dishes out his genius with a great big grin

Ne'er has there been a successful campaign without his direction
Generations of Liberal Party leaders have relied on his perfection
Three Liberal majorities are under his belt
And he makes many women swoon and melt.

But there is so much more to this amazing man
So listen, learn more, and you too will become a fan

Before he took on Ottawa and the federal level
He was a legend in Toronto — they got to revel
In having Mr. Smith as Councillor, President and Deputy Mayor
David has always been a real team player

We haven't even mentioned his life in law
Yet again, in that field he inspires awe
Supremely successful, smart — short — and full of many graces
In his crisp shirts and many-coloured braces

Early 20th century music he sings with delight
Gospel music too he can sing it just right
Not to mention the Gospel itself — a true preacher's son he is
Reciting the Book like a true real whiz

Without a doubt, the most important elements in his life
Are his three fabulous children and most incredible wife
He adores them all with love and dedication
They are the most amazing family — in fact, they are a sensation!

So here's to you Senator Smith, the world salutes you
We love you, adore you and admire you too
Of all you have achieved and done so far
In this crazy old world you are one real star.

Business of the Senate

19 Jun, 2014 | By Senator Joan Fraser | Colleagues, I'm rising to speak on behalf of my leader, the Leader of the Opposition, Senator Cowan, who had to be in Halifax tonight on public business. I must tell you that when I called him to say we were going to be adjourning for the summer tonight, he was, I could tell, quite irritated, not because he wanted us all to go on working like galley slaves but because he had already written a speech that he wanted to give tomorrow morning.

Lighthouses as Irreplaceable Symbols of Maritime Heritage—Inquiry

19 Jun, 2014 | By Senator Jim Munson | Thank you, Your Honour, and my apologies to Senator Champagne.

Unequal Access to Justice—Inquiry

19 Jun, 2014 | By Senator Joan Fraser | Colleagues, I know that Senator Jaffer was preparing to close this debate but, before she did that, I just had to say how terribly important the subject she has raised is.

The Senate—Promoting and Defending Causes that Concern the Public Interest—Inquiry

19 Jun, 2014 | By Senator Jim Munson | Honourable senators, I am looking for a bit of love and empathy at this late hour because I do have a speech, but you have to understand that, in the interest of having dignified departures for our five senators this week, I gave up my time to make sure that we were able to celebrate the departures of Senator Buth, Senator Segal, Senator Callbeck, Senator Dallaire and Senator Champagne.

Study on Status of Canada's International Security and Defence Relations

19 Jun, 2014 | By Senator Grant Mitchell | So, you thought you weren't going to hear from me? Well, I fooled you! So there! I rise in support of this report by the Defence Committee recommending that Canada become involved in ballistic missile defence with NORAD. I congratulate Senator Lang and other members of the committee for what I think was great collaborative work, completely non-partisan, very extensive and detailed with intense research.
