Yes, even at Saint-Jerome, which is a very peculiar place; but, out in the country, it is a good deal more difficult to get mews from every part of the world.
My constituents are not satisfied with this change. To go round those two counties is a task which it would take four months to fulfil. Meetings cannot be held on week days, people are 'busy everywhere, we can meet them only on .Sundays, after high mass or vespers, or at might. The county of Montcalm numbers thirteen parishes and the county of L'Assomption eleven, twenty-four parishes in all. Therefore, it would take twenty-four Sundays to go round both counties-about half of the year, because as we figure it, the year is composed of fifty-two weeks. Is that fair? I say it is not. The leading commercial houses, the leading industries, the banks, the great companies, the capitalists are to be found in the large cities. Now, are not all those people in a position to protect themselves and even to exert a great influence? We very seldom see a minister out in the country, whereas in the city is all the reverse. In many cases the great centres supply the deputies to the country, and those deputies exert their influence in the great centres where they live.
