Mr. HYNDMAN:

The hon. member quoted from various newspapers which were favourable to his resolution, but I venture to say that there were many opposed to any change in our flag.

Mr. A. B. HYNDMAN (Carleton):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to congratulate the proposer of this resolution (Mr. McIntosh) upon the manner in which he has brought it before the house. I was glad to hear him say that he hoped that the debate would be kept on a high plane. A subject of this kind should always be discussed from the national rather than the party point of view.

The hon. member said that the debates on this subject in the past had caused " consternation " in the Conservative party, but I am sure that if he were to consult his Liberal friends privately and quietly he would find that many of them are not in favour of changing the flag at the present time. The hon. member proposes setting up a special committee. I do not like that word " committee," especially after the experience we had with a certain other committee. I feel that we would get nowhere with a committee. I refer to the interdepartmental committee that acted in connection with the Bren gun. That committee was supposed to pass upon certain proposals put before it, but its recommendations were overruled. I feel that if this question is to go before a committee there will be a possibility that the recommendations of that committee will be overruled.
