VANCOUVER ORANGE LODGE RESOLUTION.


On the Orders of the Day being called:


LIB

William Chisholm

Liberal

Mr. WILLIAM CHISHOLM:

I desire to call attention to the fact that question No.

18 does not appear on the Order Paper in the form in which it was first submitted. It has been emasculated. The resolution referred to was set forth, and the questions were directed to' it. A resolution addressed to the Premier of Canada, to the Rt. Hon. Winston -Churchill and to Sir Edward Carson is surely proper enough to be printed in the Orders of the Day, and a resolution passed by -such a body as the Vancouver County Orange Lodge cannot be of such a character that it should not appear in public print. Therefore, I -submit that whoever emasculated the question had no right to do so.
