I certainly would if I were a private citizen, but I see no reason why a minister of the crown should be able to enter into direct negotiations with a crown corporation. In my opinion, if he had done what was right he would have resigned his interest in his various business enterprises when he became a minister, the same as the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Howe) did in 1935 when he became a minister in this government.
