Mr. Speaker, may I endeavour just to shorten this debate? The hon. member for Cape Breton South is not in his seat. As to the suggestion that any .[DOT]eflections were cast by this group upon any member of the armed forces, I want to say that no reflection whatever was cast or intended by the hon. member, nor would we tolerate for an instant any such reflection.
