Mr. Creslohl:

Mr. Chairman, on a point of order, perhaps to enlighten the hon. member, notwithstanding his agitation about the document which he read to the committee, unfortunately the committee cannot consider it. That is a premarital contract. Whether the hon. member likes it or not, this is a premarital contract passed before the proper authorities in the province of Quebec and the house cannot pronounce itself one way or another in any manner which could affect that contract. It is a contract which deals purely with rights and properties within the province and for this reason I submit the hon. member is entirely out of order. If the hon. member has no other matter to raise, I suggest this should be pointed out to him, since the house has no jurisdiction whatsoever over this aspect of the question. I do not wish to pronounce myself as to the conclusions he is drawing. They may be proper or improper. The point is that if we consider them we would be dealing with a matter which is entirely within the jurisdiction of a province and, therefore, this committee should not pronounce on it in any way.

Mr. Crestohl:

On this point of order, I am afraid Your Honour has been deluged more by the experience than by the actual case. I know the hon. member for Timiskaming has no intention of being unfair in what he is saying, but when he speaks about investigators who have been before the courts, investigators who have been convicted, he is speaking in general terms and we have no way of knowing whether these are the people who should now concern us. Unless the hon. member has something to say which casts doubt upon the accuracy or upon the character of these particular investigators, it is not permissible for him to make the statement he made. From his general statements about investigators who have been before the courts or who have been convicted, one might assume he was speaking about investigators who appear in this particular case, in this bill which is now before us, and he might be unfair in doing so although he did not mean to be unfair.

I think my hon. friend from Bonavista-Twillingate was right on the point when he asked that the hon. member should stay closely to the allegations made in the bill and not go far afield, unless there is an association between the statements he has just been making and the present investigators. Otherwise, as I say, it is unfair and an injustice is being done to them.

Mr. Leon Crestohl (Cartier):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to address a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs. Can the minister inform the house whether his officials have received any further report on the incident which took place in Brazil, in which two Canadian judges were injured?
