Mr. Dupuis:

I did not beat any Liberal in St. Mary. I was a Liberal myself, and I thought I would be a better representative than my opponent. Some other people thought the same way, and I am here.

In Canada we can depend on the honesty of our public servants, and that of this Liberal government which, during its long term of office, has never been suspected of corruption of any sort. Eisenhower has to his credit a life entirely devoted and heroically consecrated to his country. I wonder if we could find a person with such merit in the ranks of the opposition, so they might feel that they have a chance to take office after the next appeal to the people.

Other factors, such as controversies in connection with the settlement of labour questions, and the part taken by the United States in international affairs, have engaged the attention of our neighbours, and there is no doubt that these factors influenced the verdict of the electors in that country. In Canada the achievement of the Liberal party in all spheres of our national economy is the assurance of the confidence it will receive from the Canadian people. Under the direction of its most worthy chief, Right Hon. Louis St. Laurent, the Liberal party can face the coming appeal to the people with serenity.
