PRIVILEGE-MR. POULIOT COMMENT IN OTTAWA CITIZEN ON SPEECH RESPECTING CIVIL SERVICE COMMITTEE


Mr. JEAN-FRANQOIS POULIOT (Temis-couata): Mr. Speaker, to my utmost regret it is my duty to rise to a question of privilege. Referring to yesterday's debate on the civil service commission, the reporter of the Ottawa Citizen, in a column entitled Glimpses of Parliament, writes in this morning's paper: Mr. Pouliot, who was chairman last year, gave expression to views which, as usual, were not qualified. My answer will be threefold. In the first place, I never speak through my hat. In the second place, I would suggest to that gentleman of the press gallery that he read the 43,602 numbered pages of the last 461 files of the civil service commission which were in the office of the clerk of the civil service committee last year, and which have all been returned to the commission. The third part of my answer shall be biblical: They have eyes and see not; They have ears and hear not; They have noses and smell not.
