Liberal

Mr. MITCHELL:

I would say no.
Mr. T. J. O'NEILL (Kamloops): There are many observations I could make in rebuttal to some of the statements made to-day. It is my understanding, however, that the rules of the house do not permit of that procedure.
All I wish to do is to thank the house for its indulgence, and to thank those who have taken part in the discussion. I believe my purpose has been well served. If the government were not alive to what was going on in British Columbia, they will be alive to it now.
I say, in apology to the hon. member for Fraser Valley (Mr. Cruickshank), the Minister of Labour (Mr. Mitchell) and others who voiced their regret that I had not given a little notice, that I am not built along those lines. When I decide to do something I believe that now is the appointed time to do it. I decided when I was entering the house that now was the time and now was the hour.
I move for the withdrawal of the motion.
