Mr. Wylie:

It is quite evident that those who are butting in do not know their hockey players, because Lionel Conacher did not play with the Toronto Maple Leafs. It is quite evident that all they are doing is interrupting. I will say, Mr. Speaker, that Bucko McDonald still carries a wicked stick and not only in hockey, playing with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He has also shown his power in politics. So hockey players do carry quite a bit of weight.

Mr. Wylie:

I would like to tell the hon. member for Athabaska (Mr. Dechene) that we do enjoy what the Imperial Oil is doing by

bringing the hockey game into every home every Saturday night. Now, Mr. Speaker,

I see that my time is slipping along.

Well, I am just at the blue line, but I would sooner be at the blue line than at the red line any time.
