It is not for me to defend the mounted police. The minister is much more capable of doing that than I am. This is my question. Has the hon. member had any dealings with the mounted police in regard to communist activities?

Mr. Chairman, I must say I am most surprised to see the hon. member for Eglinton taking exception to the understanding about radio time. Having been in the Ontario house for many years, I would say that it ill becomes the opposition to blame
the C.B.C. for the time they have given the Labour-Progressive party. For I sat in the house in Ontario while the Leader of the Opposition in this house was the premier of Ontario. And he could have, in his own province, outlawed the communists and prevented them from sitting in the Ontario house, just as the premier of Quebec did, if he was sincere in his talking.
