Mr. G. A. Cruickshank (Fraser Valley):

a backbencher may enter a discussion among the leaders of the various parties- I lead my own party-may I say that I do not approve the motion. I understand it is not a government measure. If there is to be an amendment-and I hate to be in accord with the leader of the opposition or the leaders of the other two parties-I think we should go all the way. Why not consider the maritimes and the western provinces? Let us sit on Wednesday evenings, and, so far as I am concerned, Saturday as well, and finish the session. If the motion is not a government measure I do not think it should be proceeded with at this time. I suggest that an amendment be introduced to provide that we sit on Wednesday evenings, and let us finish the session.

Topic:   PROVISION FOR EVENING SITTINGS 7.30 TO 10.30 UNTIL LAST SITTING DAY IN APRIL
