Mr. Cruickshank:

I would like to say a word on this as it is not yet one o'clock. I see there is an item for a building at Huntingdon. I want to thank the minister as I am sure it will be an excellent building. It is one reason why I am perhaps in a different position from that of my hon. friend from Vancouver-Quadra. I want to get home and see the commencement of that building.

You know, Mr. Chairman, I have had a little experience in filibustering myself. As a matter of fact, I have been accused here of being the champion filibusterer, so I rather resent my hon. friend trying to usurp my championship in that line today. I want to get home and see this building opened.

Mr. Cruickshank:

I shall make way very shortly for the hon. member for York South (Mr. Noseworthy). I just wish to express my appreciation to the leader of the Social Credit party, and through him to all members in that party, for having confirmed at last what I have known for a long time to be the fact, namely that they do not believe in free enterprise. They do not believe the resources of the country should be developed, unless it is done by some socialistic state. And they demonstrated that fact last night by their votes. I know one province that is particularly interested in having that fact confirmed, and that is the province of British Columbia. The people in that province will be interested to know that the Social Credit party does not believe in free enterprise.
