Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. I see that I am reported in the Toronto Globe of yesterday as having made a statement which is inaccurate. The Globe states:-
Mr. Wilcox's Information is Not All Reliable.
If Mr. Wilcox is correctly quoted in the Ottawa despatches as to the conditions surrounding racing in his constituency of iSouth Essex and elsewhere, he has got much of his information from very unreliable sources, and the following statement, ascribed to him, is full of inaccuracies: "The tracks at Windsor are
operated by the American Turf Association. They operate in Mexico, just over the boundary line, about a mile from El Paso, and also in Florida in winter time."
I desire to say, Mr. Speaker, that I never said in this House or out of it that the [DOT]tracks in my constituency were operated by the American Turf Association. What I did say is that they are predominated by American influence. I want to say further that I do not want to assume the responsibility of correcting all the inaccuracies that may appear in the columns of the Toronto Globe, but it affords me unbounded pleasure to correct this one.
Subtopic: CORRECTION OF STATEMENT IN TORONTO GLOBE.
