Arthur Meighen (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MEIGHEN:

Because of the failure of my hon. friend and those around him to state these facts to the electorate, and because, where my hon. friend did not have the hardihood to state himself what was in the interest of his party in the way of misrepresentation, there was always around him and through the press an army which was competent to do that.

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MEIGHEN:

I really thought the hon. member had used the word "fooled." The hon. gentleman is only wrong to this
