Mr. M. W. Martin (Timmins):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege. In yesterday's copy of the Ottawa Citizen there is a report which is quite erroneous. I will read the paragraph which refers specifically to my point; it is criticizing the hon. member for Quebec-Montmorency (Mr. LaCroix) with regard to the matter of the flag, and it says:
Moreover, he could have withdrawn his motion, thereby saving many Liberals and C.C.F. members from voting against their own actual wish for a national flag.
I sent out for copies of Le Droit and I found this paragraph in the edition of Tuesday, November 12, in an editorial by Mr. Pierre Chaloult, which reads as follows:
. . . thereby saving many Liberals and Social
Crediters from voting against their own actual wish.
My point is this, and maybe it has to do with simultaneous translation between the newspapers; that my interpretation of this article is that it referred to the Liberals and the Social Credit party, and I should like to correct the matter because all the members of the C.C.F. party voted in favour of the flag.
