Now, Mr. Speaker, 1 have taken up the time of the House citing quotations from the press, and I would not have done so were it not for the fact that we have been challenged from time to time to show reason why we object to the present legislation in Manitoba. It has been said by our friends opposite that there was no agitation in the west for an amendment of the law, and in consequence of that allegation I found it necessary to cite the public comment on the question. I think it is very important that this Bill should pass. It is a fair Bill, it is a Bill that nobody can take any exception to and I believe that our friends opposite when they come to reflect will decide that they will support the measure along the lines suggested by the right hon. the Prime /Minister
On motion of Mr. Staples the debate was adjourned. [DOT]
On motion of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, House adjourned at 11.10 p.m.
