May 3, 1928 (16th Parliament, 2nd Session)


Martin James Maloney

Conservative (1867-1942)


The day has come when our voice should be heard. [DOT] The day has come also when we must provide accommodation for a library of parliament. At the present time we have a building allocated for this purpose, a building which has been filling rapidly and is now taxed almost to capacity.
I offer this suggestion to the minister for his consideration: convert this chamber into a real library and convert the present library into a chamber, after the style of the old amphitheatre, where the boys will have to stand up on a pedestal before the crowd and say what they know. That would give us a chance to make our voices heard.
