I am in favour of increasing the salaries of these poor people. I know what I am speaking about. I see them at work almost every day. They complain, and rightly so. The Government to my mind, should take the necessary steps to have the law amended so as to secure a fairer rate of remuneration to these poor civil servants. If the wish is that these men should lead an honourable life, they should be put in a position to at least make both ends meets. The only way to keep them right is to pay them a salary sufficient to enable them to properly maintain their families. It is not a question of party politics, but a question of justice. I do not blame the present Administration any more than the former.
Reference has been made to the removal of Mr. Bazinet, of Joliette, an ex-mayor of that city.
