Mr. J. S. WOODSWORTH (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, according to this morning's Montreal Gazette, in his convocation address at Bishop's College Chief Justice Greenshields urged the formation of a national coalition government to bring us through the depression. The chief justice was aware that he was touching upon a controversial matter and might be subject to criticism. I would like to ask, in view of the fact that there is a definite political movement towards a national coalition government today, whether it is appropriate that a judge should1 enter the political field1 and meddle with political matters.
