Unionist

Sir ROBERT BORDEN:

The practice that has been observed in the past will be con. tinued. It has been the practice in the past, I think, to include all the days that are referred to by my hon. friends on the other side of the House. These days will continue to be observed in the future in the way in which they have been observed in the past. The sole purpose accomplished by the Bill, even as amended by the Senate, is to take two of these holidays out of i the status of custom and convention and transfer them to the status of law.

Topic:   CONSIDERATION OF AMENDMENTS BY SENATE TO BILL 53.-OBSERVANCE OF HOLIDAYS.
