Mr. T. C. Douglas (Burnaby-Coquitlam):
rise on a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker, affecting the members of this party who represent constituencies in British Columbia. My specific question of privilege relates to an article which appeared in the Vancouver Province of February 22, written by Mr. Ormond Turner. This copy of the Vancouver Province only came to my hand this morning. I am therefore raising this matter at the very earliest opportunity that was practicable.
The article reads in part as follows:
A local union official has privately admitted that at least six B.C. unions have conspired to get N.D.P. candidates elected fraudulently by entering fictitious names on the voters' lists.
Subtopic: MR. DOUGLAS-ARTICLE IN VANCOUVER "PROVINCE" RESPECTING FRAUDULENT VOTING
