Mr. LIGUORI LACOMBE (Laval-Two Mountains):
On a question of privilege, the Montreal Gazette, in the edition of July 1, 1943, has an editorial under the title, "Lacombe Eats His Words". The first sentence of the editorial reads:
Liguori Lacombe has eaten his words to the last shameful morsel. . . .
The last sentence of the editorial reads:
The important thing was that an irresponsible slander should be branded as such.
Using my privilege as a member of the House of Commons I ask that this statement be withdrawn, and I give the Montreal Gazette
until Wednesday next at three o'clock to withdraw it; otherwise I shall ask the Chair to have the reporter summoned before the bar of the House of Commons.
