Mr. Edmund Asselin (Notre Dame de Grace):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of personal privilege. My question of privilege arises from an article by Mr. Norman Simon which appeared on the front page of the first edition of today's Toronto Telegram. The article makes reference to a transcript being circulated on Parliament Hill, which I have not yet seen, and alleges that I received campaign funds from Mr. Hal Banks, former S.I.U. president. This is false. Personally I did not. Furthermore, I have communicated with my official agent and with my chief organizer for both the 1962 and the 1963 federal election campaigns. They categorically deny having knowingly received any such contributions on my behalf.

Mr. Asselin (Notre Dame de Grace):

It

would precisely be a Canadian incorporation, since normally it can be considered as Canadian when parliament authorizes its incorporation. In order to give satisfaction to my hon. friend, I may add that out of ten directors, eight are Canadians.
