April 8, 1914 (12th Parliament, 3rd Session)


John Gillanders Turriff



My hon. friend will take his chance. Of course, he says he represents eighty-five per cent of the voters. I do not see how he does that on sixty-two of a majority, but that is his affair and not 1601
mine. My advice to the hon. gentleman is to get a sure grip on that senatorship, because then he will be in a much better position to explain to the farmers of the West why he voted against free wheat and against free implements. The hon. gentleman would be more comfortable with a seat in the red chamber than in an attempt to secure the votes of the farmers of Souris another time. Therefore, my advice to the hon. gentleman is to get a good, firm grip on that senatorship.
