February 27, 1905 (10th Parliament, 1st Session)


Right Hon. S@

One could hardly imagine that any hon. gentleman would rise to move the adjournment of the House for the purpose of inflicting on us such a ramshackle- if I may use such an expression-delivery as we have had from my hon. friend. He has given us a very modern exemplification of the old story of Don Quixote tilting against wind mills. My hon. friend is becoming every session more and more quixotic in his views and methods. Take this item which he has just read from the 'Sol-eil ' and on which he has built so unwarranted a conclusion that the government contemplates introducing a Remedial Bill to amend the law of Manitoba. There is not a scintilla in the article of the 'Soleil ' which can warrant any such conclusion. The whole thing is manufactured-I will not say wilfully-but if not, I know not how to characterize in what manner it was manufactured. Where is there a single word to warrant what the hon. gentleman sees there ?
