mr. ross (st. Paul's)'-reference to report in OTTAWA "JOURNAL" OF APRIL 21
Mr. DOUGLAS. G. ROSS (St, Paul's): I rise on a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker, in connection with which I wish to refer to an article appearing in the Ottawa Journal of this morning. Some fifteen hundred people came here from every corner of Canada to hear the speech made last night by the future prime minister of Canada, Mr. John Bracken. Some of us would have liked to listen to that speech last evening. My point of privilege is that some hon. members on this side made a great sacrifice to come here; and the Journal says the official Progressive Conservative opposition found itself heavily outnumbered. In the first place I believe ten of us were here, not three, as this article states; and though there were some sixty members on the government side of the house, certainly we were not outnumbered. That is all there is to that. I would point to Hansard to show the contribution made from this side last night.
