Hugh Guthrie (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GUTHRIE:

The act I think sets that out pretty clearly. If my hon. friend will read section 235 of the criminal code he will see. This amendment provides for the race meetings at which there are trotting or pacing races exclusively. They cannot be mixed, there cannot be running and trotting. I think trotting and pacing are well-defined terms that sportsmen understand, and all people who have to do with horses. If this amendment is carried these trotting associations will be entitled to fourteen days racing per annum, just as the running races are now.
