Joseph Gédéon Horace Bergeron

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BERGERON.

May I ask the lion. Minister of Justice if he knows anything about the provisions of this measure which has been brought down by the hon. member for Verch&res (Mr. Geoffrion)-and whether it is an encroachment upon provincial rights. This is a single case which might be remedied by reverting to a sheriff's sale in the province of Quebec. The railway for which my hon. friend seems to be asking for the passage of this measure can be sold under the authority of the sheriff without this measure at all.
