We thought further time should be given to discussion of the resolution and we voted against closure; and maybe we would still vote against it if those who have spoken in the opposition had advanced arguments one after another against the pipe line. That is not what they have done. We sat here until almost five o'clock one morning, and what was it that took up the time of the house then from one o'clock until five? Did they discuss anything but points of order in order to delay progress on this bill?
