Stanley Howard Knowles (Whip of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation)

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. KNOWLES:

I wish to say that the leader of the opposition need not worry as to our attitude toward the present government, or toward the Liberal party; but that does not deflect us from realizing that at the present time everything possible should be done to bring to an end the arousing of the country and the inflaming of sectional interests and prejudices. Therefore, Mr. Speaker, I say quite frankly we feel that in the government's readiness to accept the amendment we have moved at this last moment we have won, not just for this group but for this parliament and for the people of Canada, a victory over the crisis through which we have passed. We feel that the amendment should be adopted and the motion in the amended form should be carried by this house.

Topic:   THE WAR
Subtopic:   POLICY OF THE GOVERNMENT IN MAINTAINING VIGOROUS WAR EFFORT-CONTINUATION OF DEBATE ON MOTION OF THE PRIME MINISTER
