Mr. Bernard Dumont (Frontenac):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege.
During the meeting of the committee on agriculture in Winnipeg, held on April 18 in the Monarch Life Building, the chairman of the committee tried by devious means to stop the opposition from making itself heard.
As I wanted to ask, in the presence of the representatives of the Wheat Pool, the Saskatchewan Wheat Board and the Western Farmers, that the Winnipeg Grain Exchange which is exploiting Canadian farmers be abolished, the chairman of that committee denied me the right to speak.
So I submit that this committee should resume that sitting, in Ottawa, with all the representatives who were in Winnipeg attending, to prevent this time the use of such devious means.
I put forward this proposal in order to know the true exploiters in the grain trade.
