Perhaps the minister does not think anything the hon. member for Royal, the hon. member for Kamloops or the hon. member for Vancouver East has said merits reply. Well, of course, we are getting used to that attitude on the part of the government. However, we have our own opinions in these matters.
I would like to say one or two words further, having raised the point initially. I have to say that I take issue with the hon. member for Vancouver East. I should prefer to be taking issue with the minister, because I would prefer to be dealing with something he was said by way of explanation of why the change is being made. But so far the minister has not said anything in explanation; therefore we are left to conclude that there is no good reason for the change, except perhaps some passing whim or fancy of the government which, thus far, they have not attempted to justify. I think it should be realized by hon. members when dealing with this matter-and it has been raised seriously -that the word "dominion" has always been part of the title of this country.
