June 9, 1922 (14th Parliament, 1st Session)

PRO

John Morrison

Progressive

Mr. MORRISON:

I submit, Mr. Speaker, that the proper qualities for a leader is not iron and ruthlessness. We believe a leader should have a good knowledge of his country's affairs and should have the ability to apply the Golden Rule to public business.
The Budget

Mr. Bird

Iron and ruthlessness have destroyed most of the countries in the world. They have been largely responsible for the hell that is in Europe anc in the world generally; we need the application of Christian principles to public business to-day.
In conclusion I must say that I cannot support the budget, and I am not going to support the amendment, because I think it was political trickery.

Topic:   THE BUDGET
Subtopic:   CONTINUATION OF THE DEBATE ON THE ANNUAL FINANCIAL STATEMENT OF THE MINISTER OF FINANCE
