I have no objection to that. My point is that I was one of those who opposed conscription. It was not so easy for me as I was living in an Englishspeaking community, a community made up of people of Anglo-Saxon, stock. However, I did so and now it seems to me I have the right to hope that the French-Canadians wfho opposed conscription at that time will resist increases in armaments. I am trying to do what I can, so far as the western provinces are concerned, to prevent such increases.
The Minister of Justice confesses that war means revolution, and yet he urges that we prepare for war. If we are prepared for war and war comes, surely we cannot be said to have tried to avoid the path which inevitably will lead to revolution. He asserts that it takes two to make peace, but may I suggest to him that it is equally true that it takes two to make war. However, he did not say that.
