joined forces and voted solidly against letting the dominion mayors present their case in parliament, and that was typical of any important question aired in the house. An amendment to the budget asking for a public works program had been ganged up on in the same manner.
First, I never voted against hearing the mayors of the dominion; I voted to sustain the ruling of the chair that the motion of the hon. member for North Winnipeg (Mr. Heaps) was not in order and could not come under standing order 31 of the rules of the house. Second, I never voted against an amendment asking for a public works program. Third, if the records of the house are looked into for the last three or four sessions, it will be found that the hon. gentleman voted with the government a good deal oftener than I did. Apart from that, the statement may be correct.
