I certainly endeavoured to leave that impression. At a gathering of a small number of people it was left with them by Mr. Massey. But as the hon. gentleman says, a document similar in terms did, I believe, appear in the Canadian Forum. You see that is the way it is done-never attack directly; do it obliquely.
I wish now to direct my attention for a few moments only to the matter that the right hon. gentleman referred to this afternoon- the Imperial conference to be held in this city this year. It is said by him to be regarded as the adjournment of the former conference. I believe it is not so regarded; at least I am so informed. It may be that the conference of 1930 was a failure. The right hon. gentleman said it has been described by someone as a tragedy.
