On the orders of the day:
Mr. CAMERON R. McINTOSH (North Rattleford): I rise to a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker. At page 2000 of House of Commons Debates, there appears the following statement:
Mr. McIntosh: Is it not a fact -that a lot of dead horse railways in eastern Canada have been taken over as part of the Canadian National?
I wish emphatically to deny that I uttered any letter, syllable, word, phrase or clause making up this statement; in fact I repudiate the statement and the sectional sentiment giving rise to it. Because of this attitude I ask that it be dissociated with my name in Hansard and accredited to the dead horse member, whoever he may be, who gave expression to such a deplorable spirit of small Canadianism.
