REFERENCE TO REMARKS IN DEBATE ON FEBRUARY 15

LIB

Stuart Sinclair Garson (Solicitor General of Canada; Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Liberal

Hon. Stuart S. Garson (Minister of Justice):

I wonder if I might raise a point of privilege, in order to put the record straight. During

Privilege-Mr. Garson

the debate this evening I understood the hon. member for Souris (Mr. Ross) to make a statement to the effect that I had gone about my constituency discussing the British wheat contract and in connection therewith had coupled his name with that of the Winnipeg grain exchange. I would not want the hon. member to think I had ever done any such thing. The views of the hon. member on the British wheat contract are quite well known and speak for themselves; and I have never thought it necessary to couple his name with that of the Winnipeg grain exchange in order that his position in that connection might be understood.

What I have said, however, and perhaps this is the matter to which he is referring, is that I regarded his views concerning the dominion-provincial tax agreements, especially as they applied to the province of Manitoba, as quite erroneous; and I have indeed in this connection coupled his name with those of two Winnipeg citizens, one of whom happens to be a prominent member of the grain exchange. This is however a matter that has no relation at all to grain marketing, or to the Winnipeg grain exchange.
