That was the end of that particular speech. I might just stop for a moment at this time, Mr. Speaker, in order to suggest that if hon. members would restrain that impatience born of frustration which always marks the defenders of the indefensible cause, I could perhaps get on with my remarks.
As reported at the foot of page 2513, the hon. member for Vancouver-Quadra said:
The third consideration-and this is a very important one-is that this development of oil and natural gas must bring down the cost to the Canadian consumer. I submit that the development could be of great help in reducing the cost of living in Canada. There is not much use in Canada's developing vast quantities of oil and natural gas if our people are not going to have any benefit by way of reduced prices for those commodities.
That speaks for itself. The hon. member also said something else. I admit that on this occasion he was speaking with reference to his suggestion that railway rights of way be used; he said so many things that I have difficulty in keeping up with him.
