Mr. WOODSWORTH:

Some time ago

those of us who come from the west were criticized in this house because we had anything to say with regard to divorce bills simply because they related mostly to the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. I think it is a very strange thing now that members from the province of Ontario cannot sponsor their own divorce bills. It seems to me that we ought to have an explanation of these bills since they have to be loaded on a man who comes from the province of Alberta. I would suggest that we have an explanation as to this particular bill.

Mr. JELLIFF:

It is one of the ordinary

cases that we have before us, of infidelity in the matrimonial relationship. I imagine that the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Woodsworth) is most concerned as to the future of the children who are involved in these cases. In the particular case before us I can assure him that there are no children involved As to the bills standing in my name generally, I am pleased to inform the hon. member that I have examined the evidence in each case carefully, and I think it is amply sufficient to sustain the divorce applied for.

Mr. J. S. WOODSWORTH (Winnipeg North Centre):

I wish, Mr. Speaker, to direct a question to the Minister of Finance (Mr. Robb). There is an article in the current issue of the Monetary Times in which the statement is made that sixty million dollars would be required to bring Canadian exchange back to parity with .that of the United States, and that there is not that amount of gold in Canada's reserve. May I ask if that is the real reason why gold is not being shipped at present to the United States?
