Hugh Guthrie (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GUTHRIE:

This is an effort to amend the section of the criminal code in regard to obtaining money by false pretences in order to make it apply to the issuing of cheques where there are not sufficient funds. The matter was pretty well discussed in the house last session, and the government then decided to introduce a bill to remedy the evil. The other branch of the bill has to do with the abolition of the grand jury system in British Columbia. The amendment is proposed at the request of the government of that province. .

Motion agreed to and bill read the first
