Sir EUGENE FISET (Rimouski) moved the third reading of Bill No. 16, respecting the Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada.
Mr. JEAN-FRANQOIS POULIOT (Temis-couata): Mr. Speaker, I will not take very long to explain my views in connection with this bill as the amendment which has been made is satisfactory, but I do not think I should fail to present to the house what was said at a public function in the province of Quebec with respect to the way this bill was dealt with last year. The remarks to which I refer were made at a public dinner held in Quebec on June 8, 1928. and may be found in the proceedings of the third annual convention of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, held at the Chateau Frontenac, Quebec city. With regard to this bill the following words were used:
The west must understand the problems of the east and the east must understand the problems of the west.
That is elementary; no one can object to that.
They are not the same problems.
That is true and it is also elementary.
It must be a matter of give and take.
