MR STEFANIAK (continuing):
He was a fine man. He certainly gave me some financial advice from time to time, which has assisted me during my time in the Assembly. He was a great family man, a great member of his community, a great friend and one of the great architects of self-government, getting it up and running in the ACT in a practical way through his efforts as the ACT's first Auditor-General.
