Mr. H. W. Herridge (Kootenay West):
Mr. Speaker, as a staunch believer in Confederation I wish to address a question to the right hon. Prime Minister. In view of the reported statement made by Hon. Ralph Loffmark, the British Columbia Minister of Trade and Commerce, to the effect that the British Columbia cabinet has recently discussed secession from Confederation, will the Prime Minister inform the House whether he has received any official communication from the Government of British Columbia in respect of this most calamitous announcement?
