House in committee on Bill (No. 109) to incorporate the Canadian National Bank.- Mr. German.
The MINISTER OP FINANCE (Hon. W.
S. Fielding). The only question involved in this Bill was its title. I do not see the hon. member for Welland, who has charge of the Bill, in his seat. Objection was taken to the title in the committee, and the name Empire Bank was substituted. That has been very seriously objected to by the directors of the Imperial Bank, and I think the objection is well founded. The promoters of the Bill have therefore expressed their willingness to accept the name, the Sovereign Bank of Canada. I do not think that there can be any objection to that.
