This is not the first time the hon gentleman has cut a sorry figure since he came back. It is very easy for my hon. friend to get up and try to create a diversion in order to help the Minister of Labour out of a hole. The Minister of Labour has signally and absolutely failed in bis duty in dealing with this problem of the high cost of living. My hon. friend the member for North Simcoe (Mr. Currie) need not think that in getting up and getting excited he is going to divert the attention of this committee, or this country, or this Parliament, from the main question before them .as to whether the Minister of Labour has not absolutely and ignominiously failed in dealing with this great problem before the Canadian people.
