Hon. ARTHUR SAUVE (Postmaster General) (Translation):
I wish to state that
the words which were imputed to me by the newspaper La Patrie, in its report of a meeting held at St. Eustache, on August 9, 1931, and to an extract of which my attention was drawn in the speech of the hon. member for Bellechasse (Mr. Boulanger), at page 2243 of Hansard, 1932, were never made by me neither at that meeting nor elsewhere. I mentioned that fact, at the time, by telephone to Mr. Dufresne, the news editor of La Patrie. I may say that no such statement appears in the reports of other newspapers.
