The hon. member for Quebec (Mr. Turcotte) raised a point of order to the effect that the hon. member for Grenville had no right to say that members of this House had voted for certain measures because of promises that have been made or might be made of rewards in the shape of senatorships or judgeships,
I think that as a rule these assertions should not be made, and that these are things that had better be left unsaid. I do not know whether or not it is a violation of the rule directly, it being such a general charge, and not directed against any one in particular, but that is the substance of the point and I am sure the hon. member for Grenville has no intention of insisting upon it.
