May 9, 1902 (9th Parliament, 2nd Session)


The MINISTER OF THE INTERIOR (Hon. Clifford Sifton).

I wish to move a few small changes in the Bill. There are two slight changes in section 8. to improve the wording, and to make the meaning clear.
I have been furnished with a copy of tl;e amendments suggested by my hon. friend from Lincoln (Mr. Lancaster). The most of these amendments I see no objection to, but there is one which involves a radical change In the principle of appointment, and which we would have to debate. I would suggest that we first go through the Act and make the clerical amendments I suggest, after having carefully examined and revised the clauses. Then we will go back and take up my hon. friend's amendments one after the other.
