Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege. There appeared in this building this morning a delegation headed by the government of my province of Manitoba, with which were associated other organizations representing the citizens of my province. As a citizen of Manitoba and as a representative of hundreds of people affected by the matter concerning which this delegation came to Ottawa, I wished to associate myself with it, but I was barred from entry to the room where this delegation was making its presentation. In addition I know that the hon. member for Winnipeg North (Mr. Orlikow), the hon. member for Winnipeg South (Mr. Chown), the hon. member for St. Boniface (Mr. Teillet) and perhaps others were also barred. I protest against this action.
Subtopic: MR. KNOWLES REFUSAL OF PERMISSION TO ATTEND WITH DELEGATION
