PRIVILEGE-MR. HOEY


On the Orders of the Day:


PRO

Robert Alexander Hoey

Progressive

Mr. R. A. HOEY (Springfield) :

Mr. Speaker, I crave the privilege of making a very brief statement concerning two newspaper reports, one appearing in the Ottawa Journal on June 2, and the other in the Toronto Evening Telegram of June 1. Both these articles refer to a split or division in the Progressive ranks and associate my name intimately with that division. It is scarcely necessary for me to say that these reports have absolutely no foundation in fact; that they are wholly the product of some fertile and uncontrollable imagination. I should like to add that, in my humble judgment, they are wholly unworthy of Canadian journalism.
