It has never been the practice for Canadians or Americans to doubt that a fair trial would be given to a Canadian citizen in a United States court, or vice-versa. Under the circumstances it would seem to me that the matter should rest there.

matter, the hon. member can rest assured that steps will be taken accordingly.
