The Address-Mr. McPhee
stands as a monument to record to this and to succeeding generations the colossal extravagance and incompeteney of a Conservative . government in the province of Manitoba, with the political history of which my hon. friend is quite familiar. It was a political reign of terror, during which men were thrown into gaol whose only offence was that during election time they had worked on behalf of the Liberal party. I want to say, Mr. Speaker, that Saskatchewan has added to its political litany a supplication that it may never witness within its borders an era of public life such as cursed the province of Manitoba in that period of its history known as the Rob-lin regime. That supplication has had the result that in this House there is not a Conservative member from Saskatchewan and in the legislature of that province, composed of sixty-three members, there are only three Conservatives, notwithstanding the fact that the leader of the present Conservative party there was taken from a school inspectorate to organize and resurrect a party whose political future in that province is as dark as the "hush'd silence of the grave."
