CRIMINAL CODE

AMENDMENT TO PERMIT SWEEPSTAKES ORGANIZED BY PROVINCES FOR BENEFIT OF UNIVERSITIES OR HOSPITALS


Mr. ERNEST BERTRAND (Laurier) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 28, to amend the criminal code. He said: Mr. Speaker, subsection 6 of section 236 of the criminal code has to do with the exceptions in favour of lotteries. One of these exceptions is found in paragraph (e), as follows: (e) the Art Union of London, Great Britain, or the Art Union of Ireland. This exception is now obsolete. However, all hon. members know that a number of sweepstakes are now being held throughout Canada. It is the intention of the bill to repeal paragraph (e) and replace it by another which would permit the recognition of sweepstakes by the governments of the provinces, the benefits to go to universities and hospitals. The bill speaks for itself. Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
