Glenlyon Campbell

Conservative (1867-1942)


Well, if I am not permitted to read it-it is much better written than I could describe it. This article goes on to say-and I refer any hon. gentleman to it who wishes to see it-that instead of the newspaper withdrawing the charge, which was practically identical to the charge that I made, it was, the premier, Mr. Scott, himself, who withdrew from the charge by *withdrawing his suit for defamation of his character, when he was haled before the courts to give evidence in the matter. He withdrew the charge himself, the newspaper did not, and that is the point I wish to bring to the attention of the House. Another article that would be amusing reading for some of the hon. members, appears in the same paper, the Moosejaw 'News,' on the 4th day of this month. I regret taking up the time of the House at this late date in the session, and I also regret that I did not bring it up earlier but could not owing to physical disabilities.
