George Alexander Drew (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. George A. Drew (Leader of ihe Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I must confess that I
am wholly unable to understand what the hon. member for Athabaska is speaking about. It will be recalled that during the debate yesterday, at a time when I was speaking and when we were discussing matters before the house, there was a very loud and clear interjection, "Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas". I said I was very pleased to note that one hon. member was anticipating the season. I think a great many hon. members have indicated clearly that they are anticipating it. It was in that sense I meant my remark, and if the hon. member has taken any other meaning I am sure he has taken a meaning that was not the proper or correct interpretation of the words.
