Whilst I was not ready the other evening to stand by the motion of the member for Vancouver, because I am not convinced that in all provinces the sentiment is unanimous, yet my temperance principles will impel me to stand by any province which adopts prohibition for itself: I understood that my hon. friend would come here with legislation that would make good that prohibition in the particular province. I know that my hon. friend would not resort to quibbling; he has too great a reputation for that. But he knows that his legislation will not be backed by public opinion in the province of Ontario if it does not go further. If you do not prevent the distillation of whisky and strong beverages in the province of Ontario, you are not meeting public opinion as expressed in this province.
