Arthur Graeme Slaght

Liberal

Mr. SLAGHT:

Let me conclude by saying that this fastidious gentleman, who criticized the representatives of Canada as a whole in this house, the members whom the people from every riding sent here to represent their views, drew down from the public trough- ate the bread paid for by the taxpayers, drank the wine paid for by the taxpayers in his house in Washington for four and a quarter years at the expense of this country-in excess of $125,000.

Mr. SLAGHT:

Let me suggest that if there is a gentleman in this house who approves of his subversive, vile, slanderous imputations

on Canada and our parliament, let him rise in his seat and support it.

Ernest Lapointe (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Liberal

Mr. LAPOINTE (Quebec East):

Mr,

Speaker, I did not want to raise a question of privilege, but since the hon. member for Parry Sound (Mr. Slaght) has done so, may I say this. There was a sentence in the speech as it came over the radio last night- I had the misfortune to be indisposed and I heard the speech-which struck me at the time, and which I read now in the Citizen:

You will never get prosperity until you get into parliament men who love this country better than themselves.

That, Mr. Speaker, is a mean, slanderous statement, and I repudiate it for all my colleagues in this parliament.

Mr. DUPUIS:

Mr. Speaker, I should like to add my word of protest against the address of last night. Allow me to say to that new Moses that he will not be able to cross the Red sea without drowning himself.

Jean-François Pouliot

Liberal

Mr. POULIOT:

Mr. Speaker, rising to a question of privilege about this unfortunate incident, may I remind you of what happened one day in connection with a former postmaster-general who was supposed to be very mean. He went .to a tailor to have his coat turned, and the tailor said, "It is most unfortunate, sir, but I cannot turn it because it has already been turned." That is what happened to Mr. Herridge, who is a false prophet.
