Mr. L. DUGUAY (Lake St. John) (Translation) :
Mr. Speaker, may I, in my own name and that of my constituents, sincerely congratulate the hon. Minister of Finance (Mr. Rhodes) on his .budget speech. I sincerely congratulate also the hon. member for Shelburne-Yarmouth (Mr. Ralston) on the extremely arduous task he accomplished with such imposing success. The hon. member for Hoche-laga (Mr. St-Pere) also may well be proud of
his magnificent examination of conscience. I am convinced that after such proofs of perfect contrition his constituents will not hesitate to give him absolution and will not hold against him the fact that he thought rather late of the remedy he should have suggested in 1926 or 1928. '
