I entirely agree with the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Stevens);
I am afraid your honour reads this rule too literally. Rule 306 states:
It is not in order to read articles in newspapers, letters or communications emanating from persons outside the house and referring to, or commenting on, or denying anything said by a member or expressing any opinion reflecting on proceedings within the house.
The hon. member who is speaking has not reflected on any other hon. member of the house, nor has he reflected on any proceedings within the house. He is just quoting editorials, and I submit that he is quite in order.
