-they have become very jubilant and see in any small gains the hope of once more obtaining the reins of government. The Tory party always seems to have had the idea of an inherent right to govern. They think that the right to rule was given them by divine authority.
Before I touch upon the matters in the speech from the throne, I wish to call to your attention an article which appeared in the Friday afternoon edition of the Ottawa Journal. It states: "Liberals blamed by
Drew for scene interrupting Chevrier." I shall not read the whole article, but shall quote a part of it:
He had been astonished by the disturbance in the government benches during the address of Transport Minister Chevrier. "Anybody who thinks the first interruptions came from the Progressive Conservative side of the house must not have been in the house at the time," said Mr. Drew.
Does the hon. leader of the opposition, Mr. Speaker, think that all the members in the house are blind and deaf, as they would have to be to give any credence to such a statement? There were over eighty interruptions during the minister's speech, started by the member for Vancouver South (Mr. Green), who, along with another member on the same side of the house, continually interrupted. Never have I observed more disgraceful behaviour by opposition members towards a minister who has always been most courteous.
