I suppose my hon. friend was then able to read that clause 10, and understand it. and I presume that when it spoke of separate schools, he knew what it meant, and when it spoke of the i rights of minority he must have known what it meant. He did not then object. He did not then say a word against that clause 10 of the Act" of 1880 establishing separate schools. He did not protest that it was in violation of the British North America Act. He had a speech to make that day on some other question, but on that question he had not a word to say. This session however, before the Bills to establish these new provinces were introduced, and consequently before he could have known what clauses they contained regarding education, he started an agitation against them.
