I shall deal with that in a moment. The hon. member for Selkirk (Mr. Thorson) answered that question adequately when he pointed out that, altogether apart from other difficulties, a province legislating with regard, for example, to hours of labour and wages might find itself at a grave disadvantage in comparison with provinces which were, shall I say, more backward and would not legislate along those lines. I regard the method of individual provinces legislating in social matters of that description as cumbersome and quite ineffective, and I do not believe we shall be able to find satisfactory solutions to the problems which confront us if we rely upon that particular method of procedure.
