I forgot to state, in answer to the statement by the Minister of Trade and Commerce the other day, that some years ago, when the World's Congress of Geology was held at St. Petersburg, the or-ly scientist representing Canada was the late Monseigneur Laflamme of Laval University, who was a well-known authority in geology and other sciences. He has left seme successors to follow in his footsteps. Some years ago, when I was in Japan, visiting the University of Tokio, where there aie, as my hon. friend knows, very eminent scientists, I found that the name of Monseigneur Laflamme was the only Canadian name known to that distant country. I make this -statement to show that Laval c- uld be of service to the country through some of its well-known professors. I hope my hon. friend will revise the unjust and biased view taken by his colleague the Minister of Trade and Commerce.
