Exactly, sir; and I was just about to read the editorial when you rose. It is under date of August 6, 1946:
Mr. Pouliot has taken cowardly advantage of the privileges of the house to use language and make accusations which he must know would likely submit him ito an action for slander had he expressed himself in similar terms elsewhere. It is surprising that the Speaker, who is so .meticulous about his own privileges, failed to rebuke Mr. Pouliot for abusing the privileges of the house.
-which was done this morning. With all due respect for the Chair, Mr. Speaker-and you know I have the deepest respect for you-
I cannot stand for an accusation of cowardice by the editorial writer of this newspaper. The House of Commons has been my battle ground, where I have carried on my fight against the quacks of the medical corps of the army. Of course I made laudable exceptions, but they are few.
