Mr. SAMUEL GOBEIL (Compton):
Mr. Speaker, if I rise to make a few remarks on this bill it is only to endorse the remarks which have just been made by the hon. member for Dorchester (Mr. Gagnon) who stressed particularly one or two points.
He commenced by referring to the speech which was made by the hon. member who preceded him, the hon. member for Megantic (Mr. Roberge). When I rose to a point of order while the hon. member for Megantic was speaking, some hon. members may have thought I should have allowed him to proceed, but I did it for the reason that has just been given by my hon. friend from Dorchester. If you, Mr. Speaker, or the house, understood, the remarks sometimes made by the hon.
member from Megantic I do not think he would be allowed to make them because I regard them as unworthy of this house.
The hon. member for Dorchester translated a few of the remarks made by the hon. member for Megantic, but he did not translate them all. I shall not translate his whole speech but I should like to translate one other remark which the hon. member for Megantic made. He said that there never was a law passed by this parliament so infamous as this one except the law of conscription in 1917. The other day I heard an hon. member opposite say that conscription was a dead issue. My hon. friend from Dorchester said yesterday or the day before that it was not a dead issue, and you can see very well, Mr. Speaker, what is likely to happen in the few months that are ahead of us. That is why I objected to the remarks of the hon. member for Megantic. In a most inoffensive way he proceeds to read his speech, every word of it-
