PRO

Thomas George McBride

Progressive

Mr. McBRIDE:

Then I read in the Financial Times that this country is entering upon a wave of prosperity that it has not experienced for years, and I think that that statement is correct. Bearing these facts in mind why should the time of this House be taken up day after day, and week after week, in trying to hold Canada up to ridicule, and to condemn the members of the government and the country for political reasons. That is why this propaganda is being carried on and for no other purposes. Is that why we are sent down here and paid salaries for? Is that what the people of Canada want us to consume the time of the House with? If it is, I do not want to come back.
