a legislative assembly in certain countries (that can pass laws)
  • And when it was aired in the Twenty-eighth Parliament—in 1969—that U.S. deserters were being turned back at the border because they were "persons who were likely to become public charges," I never actually said—to any of my Canadian friends—that I suspected these deserters were no more likely to become "public charges" than I was likely to become such a charge.
