Mr. FIELDING.

No, but I think that the reverend gentleman, having this knowledge, might certainly have exercised his power in another way. He could have found local authorities to deal with the matter rather than bring it to Ottawa. And, perhaps I may be permitted to remark that it seems a rather strange thing that the hon. member for Yukon (Mr. Thompson), who knows all about the conditions there, sat here for many months and never alluded to this matter, and also that my hon. friend (Mr. Foster) only brings the matter up after the hon. member for Yukon has gone away.
