Mr. LENNOX.

The minister changed the penalty under this Bill to a large extent, but the penalty in this clause still remains. It provides for a penalty ' not exceeding $500.' I do not know whether the attencion of the minister has been directed to that point, but I would suggest that this is a very large penalty, particularly having regard to the minister's own suggestion chat the penalty should be made very moderate at the beginning. I am not going to argue the matter but simply call attention to it.
