Mr. HEENAN:

What is my hon. friend growling about,-or is he grouching? Have you a grouch, too? Does my hon. friend not like this? I know it is rather hard medicine for the Tory party to take. I wish to say to the Minister of Immigration, however, that whether he believes it or not I am trying to maintain his position. I am trying to show that when I was in a position somewhat similar to his I had to withstand the criticism of editorials throughout the country.

They came because of propaganda of the Conservative party, especially the branch of the party in the province of Ontario, and the taxes of the people were paid to bring those immigrants to Canada.

Mr. HEENAN:

That might be true, too. The fact remains however that the hon. member prevented his own government from putting the measure through when they were willing that it should go through.
