Ernest Edward Perley

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. PERLEY:

Well, the reply was to the effect that they had not supplied Mr. Laidlaw with one bushel of seed during the years 1936 or 1937, nor one dollar's worth of feed. That is the reply signed by the secretary of the municipality.
Now, Mr. Speaker, I think the statement I have made so far proves conclusively that the telegram with respect to providing free freight and seed to Mr. Laidlaw was incorrect and was not a statement of fact. The latter part of the wire was more or less a personal attack on me, or was injected into the wire for the purpose of doing me a personal injury. I do not for one moment think that the Minister of Agriculture would desire to do that knowingly; not at all, and I am not charging him with that. But I am saying that he was grossly misinformed.
