VOTES FOB WOMEN IN DOMINION ELECTIONS.


On the notice of motion: Mr. Pugsley: Proposed resolution: That, in the opinion of this House, it is desirable that the Government should promote legislation to amend the Dominion Elections Act, so as to provide that upon any province of Canada enacting legislation giving women the right to vote for members of the provincial legislature, such women as are on the provincial voters lists, or as are otherwise entitled to vote for members of the legislature in such province, shall also, unless otherwise disqualified, have the right to vote at elections for members of this House.

Mr. PUGSLEY:

Unless the Government desire the order to stand, I should like to proceed.

Mr. ROGERS-: Would my hon. friend

let this resolution stand for to-day? Certain other arrangements have been arrived at between the whips.

Mr. PUGSLEY:

Very soon there may be elections in the province of Manitoba, where they have passed a law giving women the right to vote. Under the Dominion Elections Act it is very doubftul indeed whether women could vote at elections in Manitoba for representatives of the federal House. Women are expressly excluded from voting in Dominion elections in the provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta; it is desirable, I think, that this should be made clear. Perhaps my hon. friend will say that there will be another opportunity of bringing the resolution up.
