Pierre Édouard Blondin (Speaker of the Senate)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. SPEAKER:

I have come to the

conclusion that the bill is not in order. It would involve additional charges on the revenue of the country, and on the authorities which it is not necessary for me to cite there is no question but that the bill is not in order. Therefore I would rule the motion for leave to introduce it out of order.
