April 19, 1967

Mr. Prud'homme:

Yes, and that goes to prove the open-mindedness of the Liberal party; he saw the light and joined the Liberal party. What can I do about it?

You know, Mr. Chairman, some people spend their lives dreaming. As for him, he is a practical man. He knew he could build something concrete, he realized that only within the Liberal party he could make his fair contribution to the greatness of this country, Canada, and that is why he joined the Liberal party. That also is the reason why the hon. member for Hochelaga became a member of the Liberal party, and that goes for the Quebec leader also. What is wrong with that?

The Progressive Conservatives cannot do that because they would rather look to the past than to the future.

I quote the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre, when he said at the beginning of his remarks on April 5, 1967-

Mr. Prud'homme:

Politics are not allowed in the Canadian armed forces.

Continuing:

I speak with intimate knowledge when I say that if the public was aware of the tremendous overlapping of effort, and the consequent inefficiency, and of the appalling inter-service jealousies and rivalries for status, they would rise as one and demand immediate unification and at a much faster clip than is now planned.

Mr. Prud'homme:

Mr. Prud'homme:

Mr. Chairman, I know that I am probably out of order, but I will answer briefly. If the hon. member knew the work performed at the Quebec caucus, if he were aware of the representations made by the Quebec members at the national caucus, in short, if he knew the work done in a special committee of the Liberal caucus of Canada concerning farming policy-he is just coming from Montreal, he said so-he would not speak as he is doing now. Soon, however, he will recognize what has been accomplished, by the hon. member for Lotbiniere, Richmond-Wolfe and Levis, Messrs. Cho-quette, Asselin, Guay, in short, by all those who represent rural constituencies.
