Mr. ROSS (Moose Jaw):

That is worse than what the hon. member said before. The Turgeon commission is one of the best commissions ever set up in this country. Fortunately for the people of this country it has brought out many facts which prove the contention we have made in this house for years, that the men in the textile industry are just racketeers and not industrialists.
When the report finally comes out, I hope that this government will act upon it in a way to prevent any industry in Canada from again having the temerity to do what these gentlemen have done during the last twenty or thirty years.
