May 30, 1941 (19th Parliament, 2nd Session)


Angus MacInnis

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)


I have not the date, but it is quite recent. The book is entitled, "Dynamics of Democracy", by Philip Child and John W. Holmes, with a foreword by Sir Robert Falconer.
The hon. member for Danforth (Mr. Harris) suggested to the Minister of Finance that he should, not take much notice of representations made to him by members of this group. I do not know whether or not the minister has done so; that, however, is not important. We have approved as much of his policy as we found ourselves in accord with, and we have made certain suggestions and have hopes for the continuance of some of this legislation. The Minister of Finance may not have taken any notice of suggestions made by members of this group, but the minister will take notice of economic developments, and this house will take notice of economic developments; and if my hon. friends are not prepared to do the same, some other party will sit in the seats of the mighty in this country for many, many years to come.
