Mr. Speaker, I have just listened to the same speech that has been delivered in this chamber on every occasion that the hon. member for Restigouche-Mada-waska has visited us since he has been elected.

Mr. Stuart (Charlotte):

I did not interrupt the hon. member, but he brought my name into this question and I want to deal with this matter for a few minutes. I have not interrupted anyone, so I shall just speak about this briefly.

Mr. Stuart (Charlotte):

Mr. Speaker, I realize that after sending his speech up to the press gallery last night the hon. member was very disappointed that he did not get an opportunity to speak. I realize it was a terrific disappointment, because he took three weeks at home to carefully prepare the speech; and because it is near payday we expected him to visit us again after spending those three weeks at home preparing the speech.

Mr. Van Horne:

You know very well that we have more to do than to listen to this dim-witted, foul-mouthed saboteur of New Brunswick. You are a disgrace to this house. Your people will tell you what they think about you in the next election.

You are a saboteur as far as New Brunswick is concerned; a traitor.

Mr. Stuart (Charlotte):

Ignorance never seems to affect me very much, Mr. Speaker, and there has been a great display of ignorance in the last two or three minutes. We have had similar displays on various occasions since the hon. member for Restigouche-Madawaska came here.

The hon. member mentioned in his remarks the 17 years of Liberal rule in the province of New Brunswick prior to 1952, but when he is able to advise me that they have been able to keep a Conservative government in that province for 17 years I invite him to

come back to me and talk; because-although it takes a little time-they will be put out. When they do, it will be like 1952, when they had five members out of 52. I notice that the hon. member for Saint John-Albert (Mr. Bell) last night s'poke about this great victory they had. In New Brunswick in 1952 they were only able to elect five members out of 52, and that time will come again, because I have never yet seen the Tory that, given rope enough, will not hang himself.

The hon. member for Restigouche-Mada-waska has also been very critical of the Minister of Trade and Commerce. I shall ask him to go back over the record since 1935, and then go back over the record since the time of confederation, and show me where any person in the political life of this country has ever made a greater contribution in that period of years or any other period of years. I feel that any member who criticizes the Right Hon. C. D. Howe is critizing a man who has done more to build this country of ours into what we have to enjoy today than any other Canadian in the history of this country. You may call it anything you wish; I have my opinion and many other Canadians have their opinions. When this election they are so anxious about takes place, he will be sitting over there with 175 Liberals behind him.

Mr. Stuarl (Charlotte):

I shall take my chance. I heard the same thing before the last election, that the Conservatives would sweep the country, but when the smokescreen had cleared we came back.

I do not believe I have ever interrupted the hon. member as long as he has been here, but because I say something he does not like he does not want me to go ahead.

Mr. Stuart (Charlotte):

I am referring to the speeches the hon. member for Restigouche-Madawaska has given us when he has decided to visit us on a few occasions. Again today it is the same old theme song, bitterly critical of the loans this country has made to the unfortunate countries of the world. We have heard that on half a dozen different occasions since he came here. I am sure that those sitting with him in that group do not sympathize with those ideas. Any contributions we have made towards countries less fortunate than ourselves are, I believe, a step in the right direction. If we ever hope to have peace in this world,

Request for Election and Senate Reform the only way that can come about is by helping your friends and neighours; it can come about in no other way.
