June 26, 1954 (22nd Parliament, 1st Session)


Mr, Auguste Vincent (Longueuil):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege. I have in my hand a very amusing article signed by Tempus which appeared in the Financial Times of June 25 in which reference was made to the member for the constituency of Longueuil. I have Hansard at hand to prove that I have addressed the house on nine different occasions during this session, my first in parliament. I am most amused to think that these speeches and remarks, according to Tempus, might have been delivered directly from my bathtub in St. Lambert, Quebec. Frankly, Mandrake the magician could not have done better. As for Tempus, who wishes to have a photograph of me, I have tried to meet him face to face for the past three days but have not been able to. I have not been able to see him. He did not even call me. It is proper to say that "Tempus fugit". Therefore I wish to reassure him that as soon as I get back to Montreal I will send him a photograph with my best regards.
