My hon. friend does not see the point. After a great deal of pressure, and after having a look at this excellent bill, this morning Colonel Drew saw fit to rush in and get on the popular band wagon, so to speak, by giving the people in Ontario what he knows they should have had long ago. When I was a boy there was an old precept, to the effect that he who is faithful in that which is little is faithful also in much. As I heard the speech of the leader of the Progressive Conservative party, in which he wilfully endeavoured to chide this government for a reversal of its policy-about which I will have a word to say later-I could not help wrondering about the poor people who left the province of Manitoba during his years as premier, and who told me about the terribly meagre allowance on which the government of which he was head was giving the aged citizen of that province. He was in office then; and so I am asking the people of this country not to judge a man entirely by his words but to judge him by his actions. I repeat: he that is faithful in that which is little is faithful also in much.
