John Sylvester Aloysius Sinnott


Mr. Sinnott:

In order to press a point with respect to the curbing of inflation, I must refer to the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles). I see him in his seat now, and I would not do this if he were not here. I will give him full marks for making an honest effort to have the house follow strictly the rules of Beauchesne. He has been a very aggressive worker in this regard, and I admire him for his careful and studious efforts. However, Mr. Speaker, he seems to have lost track completely of Canada's national aspect, or at least the building of Canada, and has concentrated his efforts on giving everything away instead of building up the country's assets. I am sorry to have to reveal that in my opinion he is public enemy No. 1 as far as the cost of living is concerned. Any time there was something to be given away, any time there was any labour dispute, the hon. member has been Johnny on the spot.
