Mr. BENOIT MICHAUD (Restigouche-Madawaska):
Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. The Montreal Gazette of this morning carries the following heading on its front page:
M.P. scores "Empty Seat" report, accuses Gazette man of bad faith.
I did not accuse the reporter of the Gazette of bad faith. As a matter of fact I did not use the term at all, and the body of the report bears me out on this point. To the mass of readers who do not always read an editorial to the very last line, the heading is most misleading, and so I leave it to the house and the country to determine whether or not such a heading discloses lack of good faith, or just bad faith, to use the words of the Gazette.
