Mr. Philpott:

If anybody can tell the Minister of National Health and Welfare how to surmount obstacles, I should like to see the man. I call the Minister of National Health and Welfare-I know he will take this as a compliment-a mixture of Machiavelli and maple syrup. When there was a log jam at the United Nations and for six full years

they were not able to break the blockade and overcome the snag we all know what they did-they called in the Minister of National Health and Welfare and he put through a package deal.

What we are putting through today is a package deal. We on this side of the house certainly cannot accept the unwise amendment moved by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre because he is betting on a bobtailed straight and the Minister of National Health and Welfare is out for a full house. The hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre can get some of his colleagues to explain to him what I mean when I say that the Minister of National Health and Welfare is out to lay down a royal flush whereby every one of the ten provinces from coast to coast will be taking part in this great scheme.

This is probably the last speech I will make in the house before dissolution.
