Mr. ZAPLITNY:

I submit that the questions asked by the hon. member for Winnipeg North and the hon. member for Lake Centre are connected with this section, because it deals with the date of proclamation and that has a bearing on whether or not the people of the prairie provinces will have the legal right under this bill to call themselves Canadian citizens, and whether or not that will be a good and sufficient answer as provided in section 3. I think we are entitled to a reply to that.
