I stated some time ago that I would make an announcement to-day upon the celebration of the 24th of May. The government. I think, is right in assuming that it is the general, if not the unanimous, desire of the people of Canada that the 24tli of May, which has been celebrated as a national holiday, should continue to be so celebrated. I beg, therefore, to move that the order ' that the House resolve itself again into committee on Bill (No. 33) respecting Victoria Day.' be transferred from Public Bills and Orders to Government Orders.
April 29, 1901 (9th Parliament, 1st Session)
