The hon. member raised this
point on second reading, and upon that occasion the matter was discussed with the Department of Justice officials. That department has given the definite ruling that the measure contains the correct drafting, and I do not believe anything would be gained by referring it back to the department. We have consulted it once and laid the views of the hon. member before it. As minister I believe I am bound to take the ruling of the Department of Justice.
