Mr. Howe (Port Arthur):

I did many years ago. How many years ago, again I would have to look up my correspondence; but it was many years ago. I have known Mr. Clint Murchison for at least 20 years.

Mr. Howe (Port Arthur):

Well, Mr. Speaker, I know that my hon. friend intends that as a snide remark. I have known a great many people through 40 years of professional work or work in government. Mr. Clint Murchison is one of that great number. The friendship is no more than a friendship I have with a few thousand people whom I happen to know.
