The Deputy Chairman:

I think it is my duty to draw to the attention of the hon. member who has the floor that the question to which he has just referred is a closed incident, and I do not consider it is a subject for debate at this time on this clause.

I believe I have about five minutes more, Mr. Chairman. I was only going to take this opportunity of explaining why we voted for that motion. Since you have ruled, I am not one who is going to despise authority.

Mr. Hansell:

I will consider it, if you wish, a closed incident. I will say this, however, in connection with that incident, that the general tenor of the newspaper reports I have been able to read, except one by Doug Leiterman in the Citizen of last Saturday which gives a pretty good account, a truthful report, is that this man was fighting for the freedom of parliament to express itself. That is not the reason we voted for that-

Mr. Knowles:

My point of order is that a few moments ago you indicated that the incident of last Friday was a closed incident and should not be discussed further. The hon. member who says he does not defy your authority is doing that right now.

We have never had any contrary opinion. I will say this. This group respects parliamentary authority. I will digress no further. I should like to whittle somebody down to peanut size. Objection has been taken, and I shall not take up the point.

Now, Mr. Chairman, my time has gone and I say that we are going to support the pipeline bill. We will vote against any tactics of blocking. We do wish that members may have the opportunity of presenting arguments contrariwise if they wish, but let them present their arguments and not waste the remaining
