Mr. MACKENZIE KING:
I might go over the entire number. However all I wish to point out is that there were several other hon. members in the cabinet of that day who held much the same view as my hon. friend from St. Lawrence-St. George held then, and holds now, and has always held. I remember that the late Mr. Ryckman was one, and there were several others. I believe I could without much difficulty go over the ministry of the day and point out just how many would be absolutely opposed to any agreement with the United States and how many might be inclined to favour one.
Well, with a ministry divided in that way it is no wonder that the prime minister of the day was unable to enunciate any policy whatever.
