Mr. LAPOINTE:

Let me say to my hon. friend about Russia, that Russia is attempting a great experiment. They are carrying on a government there in a way that I do not approve. They are doing it by means of a huge bureaucracy. In another part of Europe they are attempting another experiment on strictly opposed lines. There is a country in Europe where they have established a system of absolute autocracy. But in the British commonwealth of nations, and especially in Canada, we believe in representative government and in a democracy, and that is the reason why I am opposed to the resolution and to the policy of this government, which is trying to install autocracy in this Dominion of Canada. My right hon. friend is laughing.

Mr. LAPOINTE:

Thank you very much. May I tell my hon. friend that he sometimes gives us cause to laugh and to smile. Otherwise we have only to pity the poor people who have to suffer on account of the deeds of hon. gentlemen opposite.
