April 2, 1935 (17th Parliament, 6th Session)

CON

George Spotton

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. SPOTTON:

Well "reciprocity" is only a word. We might as well say "man," but there are different types of men. We might say "Do you like apples?" "Well, some kinds of apples." The word "reciprocity" does not mean anything unless there is some equitable trading arrangement behind it.
Speaking of the Liberal party-and when I say "the Liberal party" I want it to be understood that I am speaking not of the Liberal party at large in the country or of all hon. members on the other side
of the house, but of the men who are temporarily in control-I wish to say this to the country: The same old crowd that
was cast aside in 1930 are in control of the Liberal party to-day. If this government is defeated the people know just exactly whom they are getting back.
