Mr. Ward:

Just a minute-to wipe out the whole principle of the agreement between two countries that brought such prosperity to Canada? Surely Mr. Bennett must have been

sufficient of a realist, if he was sincere in his desire to effect a trade agreement with the United States, to compromise to the point of overlooking these trifling little changes the hon. member speaks of. Why did Mr. Bennett vote as he did after the debate in 1936? Why did he not say the things then my hon. friend is saying now? My purpose in reading the debate of 1936 was to prove to my hon. friend that he was wrong. I do not think he did it deliberately at all, but he is wrong and definitely wrong, or Mr. Bennett would have corrected it at the time.
