I find further that Quebec sent to the penitentiary an average for the ten years of one in 10,120, Ontario one in 10,251 and the maritime provinces one in 12,667. I give these figures to show that in the provinces which have non-sectarian schools the average of morality is quite equal to and even surpasses that of the provinces which have separate schools.

Now, I will not occupy any more of the time of the House. The government can by force of numbers enact the Bill before

parliament; but let them remember that the people are not with them ; they are not consulted. No Act of parliament can bind an unwilling people. Prom a constitutional standpoint this Bill is beset with doubts and difficulties. If carried, it will lead to trouble. Let us start fair; let us give Manitoba and the Territories what is just and right; let us give the new provinces full control of their educational affairs and of their lands-' A bad start makes a worse ending.' We possess a great and glorious heritage, populated by people of different races and different creeds. We should by mutual concession, tolerance and forbearance, so harmonize our relations, that our people will live in peace and goodwill, and that our undivided aim and object may be the greatness and prosperity of this Canada of ours.
