Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Leader of the Opposition):
I have looked at the bill and compared it with the Lord's Day Act and with what is provided by the statutes of the different provinces and it does not appear to me that the bill either adds to or subtracts from the law as it is at the present time, and there is therefore no reason why exception should be made to the second reading beyond what I have indicated. It does seem to me that what would better meet the needs of the day would be a bill providing for the certainty of one day's work in seven instead of one day's rest in seven.
