SC

Ernest George Hansell

Social Credit

Mr. HANSELL:

The hon. member for Wey-burn says, "Also the banking monopoly". I had not intended speaking to-night and many of us seem to be riding in the same boat. This debate which promised to be lengthy is apparently on the verge of folding up. I was not rushing myself in preparing for this, thinking there would be other long-winded speakers desiring to speak between now and the end of the week, and I would, therefore, have plenty of time to gather my notes together. But here I am having to explain myself extemporaneously with a few little pieces of scrap notes.
I feel it is necessary for me to say something before the amendment is voted on. I should

like to say something which my hon. friend who has just preceded me may think rather illogical. To all intents and purposes I do not believe in nationalism, but I am going to vote with my hon. friends of the Cooperative Commonw-ealth Federation. I think it was the speech of the hon. member for Weyburn that convinced me that he was gradually-becoming a pretty- good social crediter.
