Louis Coderre (Minister of Mines; Secretary of State of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CODERRE:

This is for a referendum to the electors under the Canada Temperance Act. If the electors vote for it, the Act will be forcibly applied there. There is a decrease of 518,000 between this and last year's vote. The reason why we had to have $18,000 more last year is that we had to get out lists of the New Ontario constituencies, and of course that will not be necessary this year.

To provide for purchase of 600 copies of the Parliamentary Guide, $1,200.

Mr. PUGSLEY:

I was going to suggest that it should be looked into carefully. I see this is to pay for the patent ballot acquired by the Government some fifteen or more years ago. There is a controversy whether Mr. McDonald really invented the patent or not. I believe that in 1907 he brought a suit in the Exchequer Court against the Government, but it was dismissed. I think the minister should look into it carefully before asking for this vote.

Mr. CARROLL:

I notice in the Canada Gazette of March 13 1915, a notice that ninety positions are to be filled during the period from the 1st July to the 31st December, 1915. Are these new positions or vacancies caused by deaths and dismissals?

Would the minister give a general explanation of the work of the Printing Bureau, whether there has been an increase or a decrease in the output, whether the facilities have been improved, and such like?
