Mr. Speaker, first I should like to preface my remarks by saying that there can be no disagreement with what the Minister of Justice (Mr. Garson) has said with regard to freedom of speech, but is it not a fact that under the law as it now exists there would be no ground whatever for the prosecution of any person making statements such as Dr. Endicott has made, so long as they have to do with another country within the United Nations? In other words, there is no law at the present time that denies any person the right to say what he will in Canada about any other nation within the United Nations.
