June 24, 1938 (18th Parliament, 3rd Session)

CON

Hugh Alexander Stewart

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STEWART:

We have changed to different hours for different sections of the dominion. The result is to give in the mari-times one hour longer for polling than otherwise would be the case. In many parts of the dominion that is thought to be an advantage ; it would give an extra hour for polling in the maritimes. They would have an hour longer than voters in other parts of Canada would have.
