Mr. PEDLOW:

The two together would amount to $370,000, which is the amount, I take it, of the cost of the publicity campaign.

Mr. MURPHYT:

Is the Governor in Council, in regard to the selections to be made, to confine its choice to judicial officers, or are the selections to be made generally of persons presumed to be capable of performing the duties attaching to the council?

Mr. MEIGHEN:

I am not sure that I understand the hon. gentleman's question, but the Yukon Act provides that there shall be appointed a commissioner and also that there ishall be an administrator,~ whose duties shall be to substitute for the commissioner in the absence or illness of the latter. Without power being given under the Act to abolish those offices, they cannot be abolished. They are, however, already abolished under the War Measures Act, but it is the intention that this legislation shall confirm the action taken, and that it shall date back so as to ratify that action. There are, in the general administrative machinery of the Yukon, other offices which have been abolished as well, and notifications have gone to all the holders of those offices that their services shall cease on the 30th of April, but the Act doeis not provide for the creation of those offices, and consequently it does not need to be amended in so far as those "offices are concerned.

It may be said not to apply, because the action can be taken without an amendment to the Act.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

The explanation I have just made applies to this subclause, but does not apply to the previous clause. As to the previous clause, that provides for the abolishment of the Yukon Council, and. that action has not yet been taken. The amendment empowers the Governor in Council to take that action.
