Mr. W. G. McQUARRIE (New Westminster) :
I desire to ask a question of the
Minister of Justice (Sir Lomer Gouin) in reference to Bill No. 106, which stands in my name on the order paper. This bill is entitled "An Act to Extend the Right of Appeal from Convictions for Indictable Offences." That bill, of course, cannot be reached at this session. I wish to ask the Minister of Justice (Sir Lomer Gouin) if he would consider the advisability of taking over this bill as a government measure for next session. It is a very important measure. It was passed unanimously by the Senate after a full and complete investigation by a special committee, whose report also I believe, was unanimous. I think Canada is the only country in the world where the right of appeal is not given.
