Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prime Minister):

I rose earlier, before Your Honour, for the purpose of saying this. The attitude taken by the government with reference to this motion is that if Your Honour feels it comes within the rules, the government will welcome the fullest discussion of this subject today. After all, none of us has any monopoly in our feelings for our fellow men. In that spirit I place the matter before Your Honour, firm in the belief that if the opportunity for discussion takes place it will be welcomed on the part of my colleagues and myself.
