The paragraph to be amended at present reads as follows:
1. Definition of employer: For this purpose, every person, partnership, company, firm or corporation in Canada, employing any male person normally regarded as a full-time employee, regardless of the method of payment of such employee for his services, comes under the definition of "employer." The dominion government, the governments of the provinces, as well as municipal institutions are employers for this purpose. The term employer includes also any farmer operating a farm, who has working for him a male employee, even though such employee be a son or other relative.
The purpose of the amendment is to strike out the definition of employer, a "farmer operating a farm," so that a farmer would not be compelled to act as informer against his son or other relative.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
