Major James William Coldwell

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. M. J. Coldwell (Roseiown-Biggar):

Mr. Speaker, may I say immediately that I agree with what the Leader of the Opposition has said in regard to this matter. I want to say to the Secretary of State for External Affairs that I appreciate the very direct language which he used in that note, and I hope we shall never again have a recurrence of the persecution of any individual Canadian, highly placed or lowly placed, as was the case in connection with our late ambassador to Egypt.
Mr. Speaker, I think the Canadian people will be thoroughly in accord with the sentiments expressed in the note sent to the United States, and I hope it will have a salutary effect upon the administration of that great country with which we wish to maintain the closest of friendships.
