Mr. R. N. JUTRAS (Provencher):
Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. In an article in the Winnipeg Tribune dated May 1 of this year, questionable and unfair motives were imputed to me, and I wish now to deny them emphatically. I want to make it clear that the appreciation of my responsibility as a representative of the people, and that alone, is the motive that prompted me to expose the numerous adverse and detrimental effects that bill No. 5 would have on the Canadian wheat board and, ultimately, on the farmers of western Canada.
You will recall, Mr. Speaker, that I gave you notice of my intention to speak on that bill at the last session, but that the time expired before my turn came. Any suggestion that I took the floor last Tuesday to talk out Bill No. 5 is totally unfounded, untrue and unfair. I still have six minutes to go when this debate is resumed, and I propose to avail myself
of those few minutes to make my position perfectly clear. I hope Mr. Dick Sanburn will then be in the gallery to listen.
