Mr. C. E. Johnston (Bow River):
question of personal privilege, in the issue of the Ottawa Journal of Tuesday, April 26, the Canadian Press reported me as having said, and I quote from the newspaper:
Mr. Johnston raised his protests in opposing a bill to extend provisions of Alberta's health plan to residents of national parks in the province.
Of course that is quite contrary to the facts. I shall refer to one part of my speech which is indicative of what I said on many occasions during that speech. I am quoting from page 3131 of Hansard:
As I said when I started my remarks, we are all grateful to the minister for bringing in this legislation-although it is only his job-and making it possible for the people of Banff to have hospital service.
That makes quite clear the stand on which I took on the matter. There are many other references which give the same impression, but I shall not bother to read them.
