I do recall this, that when the platform of the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation was being drawn at Regina, the hon. member for Grey-Bruce (Miss Macphail) was present with her delegates from Ontario; and it is commonly said and alleged that when the question of the socialization of land was being proposed to be incorporated in the platform, she indicated that if it was incorporated she would retire with the delegation from Ontario. I know that in other and subsequent conferences of the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation the same proposition has been put forward and they took the excuse, as given a moment ago by the hon. member for Rosetown-Biggar (Mr. Cold-well), that because it was not a monopoly they did not include it in their platform.
