Mr. DUGALD DONAGHY (North Vancouver) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 22 to amend the Opium and Narcotic Drug Act, 1923, (Additional Punishment).
He said: Mr. Speaker, as the act stands today the punishment of whipping may be imposed by the judge only in the case of sales of narcotics to minors. The object of this bill is to extend that power so that the judge may impose the penalty of whipping in all cases of selling or peddling narcotic drugs.
