Mr. McBRIDE:

Does the hon. member for Yale know that when the government which he supported was in power they put oleomargarine on the free list thus striking at the very root of our dairy industry?

Mr. McBRIDE:

I must agree that sixty

days is about short enough. Some hon. member is talking about representing 10.000 square miles. I have the honour to represent 167,000 square miles. I have never been able to get over all that constituency yet, although I have tried to do so, when I am not down here listening to "hot air."

Mr. McBRIDE:

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.
