Mr. J. M. MACDONNELL (Muskoka-Ontario):
Mr. Speaker, while this bill we are considering deals with certain controls set out therein, nevertheless I think it has been clear from the course of the debate that the whole principle of control and the attitude of members of this house toward the controlled economy is an important element, and at the outset I should like to make some rather general observations on that point.
I have the feeling that at the present time there are two views which, like the parallel lines we learned about at school, if produced ever so far both ways will not meet. My own feeling is that that should not be so, that these differences are not absolute. It is my hopi to say some things which might enable those parallel lines to come a little closer together. Of course one hopes that when the parallel lines come closer, the line which inclines will be the other one and not one's own l,ne. However, that is as may be.
