Mr. NORMAN JAQUES (Wetaskiwin):
My attention has been called to an item in to-day's paper as follows:
The incident occurred when Mr. Coldwell, main speaker of the meeting, said that Norman Jaques, Social Credit member for Wetaskiwin in the House of Commons, declared in the house recently that the finance of Canada was controlled by Jews.
I am not apologizing for or retracting anything that I have said in this house or on the public platform outside this house, but I will challenge the hon. member for Rosetown-Biggar (Mr. Coldwell) to show where I have ever made such a statement. What I have said is that international finance is under Jewish control. Now I will go further and say it is evident that the C.C.F. intend to make that control national and are using the
strong arm of their gestapo to enforce their control.
