Mr. MAX CAMPBELL (The Battlefords):
Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. Last Sunday as I was driving to Montreal, two policemen were stopping all traffic just outside the city limits. One stepped over to my car and handed me a ticket for some police benefit and asked me to buy it. I think this is something the public should not be asked to tolerate. I spoke to another motorist who had been stopped in the same way and he told me that when he refused to buy a ticket the police took the number of his car. I protest against that sort of action by municipal police, and I think the Minister of Justice (Mr. Usley) might notify the police commission of Montreal that Canadians do not want that sort of thing.
