Liberal

Mr. CRUICKSHANK:

Mr. Speaker. I do not think any member of the House of Commons should be asked to pass any bills about which he knows nothing at all. As I see it, we should have the evidence before we pass the bills. I object to Bill No. 432 being passed until we have a copy of the evidence.
