Gordon Graydon (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. GRAYDON:

I rise to a point of order, Mr. Chairman. I am quite sure that the hon. member for Temiscouata on reflection will not want to cast aspersion upon the leader of our party. I am quite sure that he has gone a little further than he intended. It is not very often, Mr. Chairman, that it is necessary for me to rise in my place and defend the good name and reputation of a man who has been chosen the leader of a great party in Canada, the Hon. John Bracken. But I do so here with a great deal of pride and pleasure. I would ask the hon. member for Temiscouata not to follow his present line of argument; for at a time like this especially he should not cast reflections on a good Canadian who is trying to do his duty as Mr. Bracken is.
