Mr. FREDERIC DORION (Charlevoix-Saguenay):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. I read in this morning's Ottawa Citizen the following statement under the title, "Will probe charge of waste only if M.P. makes claim," which appears in the first column on the first page of the issue:

Against the government on division were Progressive Conservatives, C.C.F., Social Credit, several independents in the "rebel" corner-

According to the Oxford dictionary the word "rebel" means:

A person who rises in arms against, resists, or refuses allegiance to the established government; person or thing that resists authority or control.

I have no doubt that the 67,000 people living in the constituency which I have the honour to represent in this house will resent this insinuation, and in their names, as well as in my own, I protest strongly against it. I must tell you, Mr. Speaker, that I am not at all afraid of what this paper may write about me. I do not want its support and I do not fear its insinuations, but I have always been of the opinion that a newspaper worthy of the name at least should be honest and fair even toward those who have the right to support a different point of view.
