Mr. Macdonnell (Greenwood):
Let me interrupt you for a change, and I shall continue what I am saying. What the leader of the opposition suggested tonight was not taking away anything from anybody. Let me digress a moment to speak again to the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre, and tell him that when he suggested going back to the time of the Rowell-Sirois report he neglected to take into consideration that many things have happened since then. There have been family allowances, old age pensions and so on, and nobody suggests going back on them. I suggest to him he is, to some extent, setting up a straw man.
I return now-
