John Ritchie MacNicol

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MacNICOL:

Yes, I know. I am trying to point out that ordinarily it is supposed that the registrar of electors has been making all the revisions. It is true that in my constituency the registrar sat at three different places and my information is that approximately 200 or more names were enrolled at those three offices at which the registrar of electors held his revision. While he did1 his job efficiently, there have been between three and four thousand other names added in my riding, which goes to show that over three thousand names were added by the enumerators appointed by the candidates or by the member. I am convinced that this is a very necessary form, and I cannot see any objection to it. I cannot see where it would do any barm. It would stop those who have not the right to vote.
