Mr. DUNNING:

I do not know what

your ruling will be, Mr. Speaker. I have not my words before me. I do not desire to cause any embarrassment to the chair. I am not expert in conveying my thoughts, which may be unparliamentary in themselves, in language which is parliamentary. My hon. friend is capable of doing that. What I said this morning I really meant, honestly meant. I believe the hon. member was this morning slandering a civil servant who by virtue of his position is unable to reply, and I stated I knew of my own knowledge that the slander had no foundation. That I cannot qualify.

Mr. DUNNING:

Mr. DUNNING:

No, I said without much reference to my character. If my hon. friend will permit me, when that discussion took place in committee we were discussing not the personal covenant as such but the character element in respect to raising money by way of mortgage, as I am sure my hon. friend from Kootenay East (Mr. Stevens) will remember. I related my own experience in the early days in the west simply as typical of the methods by which business was conducted in those days; and I stressed the view that my personal character did not have nearly so much to do with their desire to lend me money as their belief in the constantly expanding economy of western Canada. That really was the point; I do not want to be taken as expressing opinions with regard to the legislation of any province.
