Mr. EDWARDS (Frontenac):

I would ask the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Woodsworth), who in order to determine how he should vote on the second reading of this bill has no doubt studied the evidence in the case very carefully, to be good enough to state in what particulars he considers the evidence weak. He is not speaking about the bill at all.
