Mr. A. L. Smith (Calgary West):
Mr. Speaker, over the week end I read in the newspapers that the first live rat had appeared in the province of Alberta. That is a fact
I am not joking about it, and we understand the menace. Strangely enough, it came from the east, and was found in the city of Edmonton. Since we have all received copies of the Edmonton newspapers concerning a certain route for a certain highway, I must say I thought the choice of this animal to blaze a trail through the wilderness was very peculiar.
