Mr. Speaker, before closing I desire to enter my strongest protest against hon-members opposite interfering with the transacting of the country's business, by means of obstructive tactics such as has been resorted to during the past six months.

If this cannot be done then speaking for myself, I believe the government should take the matter in hand and show the country that while they have been patient there is also a limit to which patient endurance will not submit, and that the country will no longer suffer what we have been forced to endure during the past six months.
